We've decided to visit this museum without any expectations, especially after the Immigration Museum turned out to be rather bad. To my surprise, this museum was really interesting, with nice exhibitions (some of them with English descriptions). The building itself is a good one too - if you consider visiting only one museum, this is the best choice!

Stumbled upon this museum while we were out exploring the city on foot. Stopped in and spent a couple of hours learning about the city’s history.
Great stop!

Nothing you see on the ground floor will prepare you for the comprehensive and interesting history of the city you will find on the upper floors.

Come and see how was Gdynia born, not quite a long time ago, shortly before the IIWW, when some dreamers built the ultra-modern city almost straight on the beach next to the fishing boats and fields of simple fishermen. The museum is interactive and even its building was designed to reflect the beauty of the elegant and spacious city.

Did you know that the town of Gdynia was only founded 90 years ago and developed, from a tiny fishing village to a national seaport within just few years?
Lots of interesting things to see here - the permanent exhibition is dedicated to the history of Gdynia, presenting lots of interesting facts in a comprehensive and attractive way (games, puzzles, multimedia etc.). There's usually two other temporary exhibitions as well - from interior design, through film posters to the history of religion.
Admission is free on Fridays.
They also host many free-of-charge additional events (workshops for kids, lectures, guided tours etc).

I found it interesting and worthy to spend couple of hours if you history lower. Take opportunity to visit a restaurant and have a nice walk in the city.

Fridays are free entry day at this museum. Regular admission is 7PLN per adult or 4PLN per child.

If you have children or are particularly interested in the history of Gdynia, absolutely visit the City of Gdynia Museum. If not, you are not missing much by skipping it. The museum is interactive, modern, and offers some pretty interesting exhibits. There is a limited amount of information in English.

There are free bathrooms and a free water cooler, which made it nice to take a little break after exploring the museum. Overall, you can easily kill an hour in this museum.

Worth a trip to this Museum. On the seaside. My Grandparents home was situated on this spot, and before the new museum was built they used the old family home and surrounds. Full of interesting History of the development of Gdynia City and the building of this strategic Port and its importance in the onset of the Second World War.

Well arrived here in Gdynia on the 3.11.2011, a wet cold afternoon and was to start working here for my Norwegain company.Yes! a jobb that was to last ten months and Im still here with a short break of tree months last summer.
Gdynia is a very nice city with a tremendous amout of very nice people kind and very helpful if you can communtcate and speak english clear and slowly.The Town has a lot to offer if just look hard enough. They have museums and they are for days when it rains, if you stay that long.The weather is good to mention straight away, It,s very stable here they, forecast the rain but in many cases its so little at times that its not worth mentioning.They have a lot of of-land winds which gives fantastic sailing here with perfict conditions and, the sailing atmosfere is just wonderful.They have a very good smal boat harbour with everythig you need.
Well back to the city its self its, pretty flat around the town center so you can walk quite far before you notice thats its time for a coffee.There is lot of cafe`s and they all sell good coffee and all types of teas.Kakes and buns are in most cafe`s and a lot of wonderful choices. All the pubs serve coffee as well so there,s no need to worry about that. Unfortunately not all the pubs have the same standards of cleans if your looking for a tiolet that keeps to the three golden rules Water, soap and paper!,this can suprise you many times when out traveling especially in earlier east european countries though I,d like to say its getting better.Many pubs cafe`s restaurants are now seen that clean tiolets a there "visit card " now.
Gdynia offers several places to dance for old and young mostly at the weekends but some also during the week, especially in the summer season.Car museum is not so big but very interesting also with a lot of motor bickes, well worth the visit on a rainy day. Go kart track at the bottom- end of town and has reasonable prices.Cinema in town "Multi Kino" that offers many new films wth very good seating and again reasonable prices. I saw the latest Jame Bond film a was seated like a king for the lengh of the film, very comfortable.The theater is also a very good attraction with both Polish and foreign actors.Theres a musical theater at the top end of town not so far away fro the bowling alley, so theres enough to visit and enjoy in the nice city of gdynia.
Last butv not least! always show your gratitude in restaurants pubs and cafe`s by leaving a tip.Very good is about 10% exellent can be a tittle more.Please remember " never throw money on to the table its fround upon. Taxis here in Gdynia are all very safe but not all the drivers speak englishand of course your fingers can be use also.Theres not a lot of swindling here in this town but becareful in Gdansk. S class is the best taxi company with the drivers and the most polite.
One more thing for the ladys! Shopping there now opened a new and very large shopping center called Riviera and its got what most women need " and don,t need" but, its warm so you don,t need take a coat with you to carry all day.
Want to take your husband with you so take a trip to the large market hall at the bottom of town, it has a lot of interesting things and it has two floors both ground and below ground.
Have a very nice stay in Gdynia and renjoy what Ihave ejoyed the last two and half years.
regards
Mr Colin.
