A wonderfully set out and interesting museum on the solidarity movement through the 70s and 80s. The audio guide really adds to the experience, in addition to numerous videos and props found throughout the museum. A must for everyone visiting Gdansk.

I found this museum really interesting as it turned out I was fairly ignorant to a lot of Polish history. I learned a lot during the couple of hours spent here. The museum was very interactive and there was loads to look at. This also did come with a downside for me in that at times, with all of the... More

Fascinating, innovative, and interactive presentation of the events leading up to Poland becoming an independent state in 1989. All this presented in a fabulous building with an interesting view over the city and docks. This wonderful museum absolutely makes visiting Gdansk an imperative.

Not sure what I thought of this placece. I think it is one of those museums to see. The audioguide was good but there was too much else on display it didn't cover and not everything is in English so it seemed a bit disjointed Informative though

If you want to hear about fall of ussr and reshaping of european borders this is a must trip when in gdansk. 15 walk from town centre and £3.50 fee a great way to spend a couple of hours.

The guidebook I read prior to visiting the centre lauded the fact that there were no intimidating guards on the doors preventing you entering. The book was quite correct, the guards are all inside, patrolling the corridors to prevent anyone from accessing the wrong part of the building without the right kind of ticket. I was happy to pay the... More

Very inexpensive (just over £3), fee cloakroom and free audio commentary which you can switch on and off as you please. A very well designed museum, with plenty to see and loads of exhibits give you the story of Solidarity and its far reaching effects on the whole world. Highly recommended!
