loved the paintings
Sep 2020
The area the museum is in is great for strolling around. The museum itself had only a few guests. Especially enjoyed the ship related paintings and climbing over the ship outside the museum. The canal looks nice with old buildings on one side and modern on the other. Moving pedestrian bridges were cool.

An interesting place, also for children
Aug 2020
An interesting place, a lot of exhibits well displayed. Interesting for children. "Sołdek" is an absolute must-see.
Inexpensive tickets. Best option is to buy combined tickets for all branches.

No English Displays or Signs - Avoid this place.
Aug 2020 • Couples
I visited here in 2017 and I can see from recent comments that they still haven't displayed signs or information about the collections in English, all information was and still is in Polish. This is very frustrating to international visitors and shows a level of customer service that is shockingly inept. Unless you are fluent in Polish I would strongly advise you to give this place a miss.

Less than minimal fun with sour faced attendants
Aug 2020
Visited during fair post COV19 and took three kids to interactive hall - 40 minutes of complete boredom. Every interesting object had been removed, half the model boats gone, no objects to put into the mini forklift truck or crane, no ropes or other rigging on the sailing craft, 90 of the push buttons shut down to prevent my children who were given masks and gloves to wear from accidentally catching the virus by touching the display. Result, they are kids, so they touched it anyway, and were disappointed. Only 4 working objects within whole room, total rip off. Instead of having to rip my children away from the exhibition, they walked out gladly early!

Not very impressive, but paying 5€/person to see 4museums it could be worse than it was.

Ir would be quite intresting to know Poland's history, but there were no captions in English or Russian, just Polish, so you can't understand anything.

So thorough, yet not to be recommended!
Mar 2020
I have been to a few maritime museums around the world, and this one really has it all, artifacts, full scale objects and history on several floors. And models etc. But promoting Gdansk to an international audience, this is totally forgotten. How many foreigners can read polish, I ask. Because - already at the reseption, the language barrier is evident. And so are the exhibitions, interesting objects and all you would like to know, but posters and information only in Polish? It's a shame, really!

Interesting Displays - Not a Must Visit
Nov 2019
The National Maritime Museum located right on the waterfront is an interesting stop on a trip to Gdansk. Whilst the information is not easily accessible in English the sites themselves are interesting, mostly the SS Soldek.

It isn't a must visit whilst in the city so if you are short on time I would recommend skipping this.

Awful.
Nov 2019 • Couples
Me and my girlfriend visited this museum whilst on a short break to gdansk and I wish I hadn't bothered with the museum and spent time elsewhere.

We found the whole process a little Confusing and a little un nerving. From the beginning with the rude receptionist who had no interest what so ever in explaining packages or prices, However I appreciate that a language barrier may have been an issue.

In the end we visited the second and third floor not even realising that there were other options available.

We usually make the best of a bad situations in these circumstances, but upon entering the display rooms we were treated and spoken too as if we were there intending steal or damage the artifacts. We visited at a fairly quiet time and this made things all the worse as we actively followed around the museum by what I presume are the curators. (they felt more like prison guards)

I have genuinely never felt more uncomfortable in a public place.

And I am amazed this museum gets any guests at all.

Could be so much better
Oct 2019
My wife and I visited this museum on our last day in Gdansk.
It could be so much better if the displays had more information in other languages. They are only in Polish.
There is a laminated A4 sheet at the entrance to each hall but even they are very confusing. I gave up reading them and just wandered around looking at the exhibits.
If this museum had audio guides in various languages I believe it could be a highlight of a trip to Gdansk.
