#1 of 24 in Museums in Gdansk
Celebrating the bravery of the Polish solidarity movement, Europejskie Centrum SolidarnoSci includes exhibition halls, a theater, and impressive architecture. Reopened in 2014, the attraction's building is as much a reason to visit as the engaging exhibits. Designed to resemble a ship's hull, the structure pays tribute to its location in the shipyards. Inside the "ship's hull," historical exhibits tell the story of Poland's fight against Russia through videos, audio recordings, and documents accompanied by visuals and interactive displays. Visit the attraction's website for a calendar of upcoming events and to purchase tickets in advance.

  • Having lived through the tumultuous changes the 1980s brought, we were very aware of the impact Solidanosć had, not just on communist Poland, but the wider eastern bloc. This contemporary museum...  more »
  • Very imposing building from the outside, sets the atmosphere well for the museum. Audio guide was informative and the museum is packed full of information, must admit we skimmed over the last part...  more »

  • Incredible museum – insightful, accessible and absolutely fascinating. Normally I don’t love an audio tour but this one was brilliant. Can’t recommend this museum highly enough for an introduction to the Solidarity movement and thoughtful, interactive explanation of it. We visited the morning before we left and spent about three hours here, which felt like enough for a good overview.
  • Visited this on my last day on a whim not knowing much about it. I have to say it was very well done and actually inspirational. It starts where the WW2 museum leaves off, and I’m really glad I went. Gave me a great understanding of modern polish history which I would likely never have seen in the UK, being too young to remember the events themselves. One of my favourite things I did in Gdansk
