Highly recommend a visit to the Solidarność museum in Gadańsk. It explains the history of the people’s struggle against communism mainly in Poland but also the struggle in other East European countries.

The European Solidarity Center in Gdansk will run you through the emotional journey of the Polish people in the early 80's through the end of Communism.
The audio guide will automatically change subject according to the room you entering.
The videos, the pictures, the collection of object of a day to day life, the first pages of various european magazines and newspapers gives you a clear idea of the repression and abuses lived by the polish people at the time and showed you the great effort and sacrifice they did along this almost 10 years long journey towards freedom

You realise by going here what how Polish people suffered massively during the 8ß's and it makes you feel good to see how a country has climbed out of this era, to slowly becoming a financial force in the EU. There are still some issues politically to be resolved, but I enjoyed being there and seeing some more of the country.

It's an absolutely marvelous exhibition and narrative, very interesting to listen, very inspirational and quite emotional.

recommended for everyone who is at least slightly interested in history, especially collapse of the USSR.

One of the best museum experiences ever! After a false start (did the whole 'don't need the audio guide, i can read' routine... took ten paces into the hall and promptly realised my mistake) this is quite simply one of the most engaging and informative experiences I have experienced. The guide takes you through the history of the solidarity movement from the soviet takeover of the shipyards right up until the present day and tells of Poland's fight for freedom, civil liberties and recognition. It shares some important lessons for us all about hard won freedom and there are some important lessons for us all in the current climate. Start this one early - two hours is not really enough to do this in (its the running time of the audio guide if you just follow it alone) and you risk running out of time if you go at the end of the day. Touch screens give you multimedia experiences as you go round and you will need time to stop and take these in too. These were regularly sanitised whilst we were there so they are doing their bit for COVID as well. The building itself is fascinating too and there are refreshments available as well as temporary exhibitions which are often free too. Great value for money and I've learnt so much in a short space of time.

A historic place in Gdańsk related to the fight of workers for their rights and against communism. An exhibition outside and the historic hall where leader Lech Walesa was dealing with communist regime in Poland can be visited and shows history very close. Times to be remembered and never forgotten!

So much recent history which has impacted so many lives. The bravery of the workers is astounding. The museum is nicely laid out and easy to follow. The movement happened in my life time and I learned so much. Feel this museum is a must.
Also take time to go to the roof , great views of the city on one side and the shipyards on the other.

This is a great museum, no doubt about it. But as soon as we got by the guard and into the first room, several people either took off their mask, pulled it under their nose, or pulled it under their chin. I came out and informed the guard, who got a room monitor who spoke English, and I told her. She went up to one person and asked them to cover their nose, which he did. By the next room, it was pulled down again. I went down to the ticket office and explained to a ticket seller the situation and she said she would take care of it. After several minutes, I observed 3 of the room monitors sitting and texting away from everyone - with their masks under their noses. Nothing was done, as I went through the exhibits and stayed as far as possible from those whose masks were under their nose, under their chin, or not on at all.

Modern, spacious, well thought and interesting. The exhibition about Solidarity is great. The place itself is worth a visit even to have a coffee during a walk in the shipyard. Recommended!
