About
The mission of the Emigration Museum in Poland is to recount the fates of millions of both anonymous and famous people - whose names emerge in the context of great achievementsin science, sports, business, and the arts. It is the ambition of this institution to make them known to Poles at home, but it is also to encourage our compatriots living at home and abroad to get to know each other. Through educational and cultural projects, the museum hopes to become a place of encounter and discussion. We feel we fulfill a particular duty in achieving this end at the best possible address - Polska Street No. 1.

Apprehensive about a visit, I think the name Emmigration museum is misleading. A fantastic journey through Polish history, excellent value, amazing exhibits in an amazing building. Well worth a visit.

I went to this museum mainly to kill time on a rainy day and walking into the main room upstairs thought it wasn't going to be very good, but when I walked into the main room it became very interesting. Easy to follow with lots of information I learnt a lot.
Highly recommended to see,about 1.6 miles from the Warship museum but I'm glad I visited.

t is a shame that a nation which has such a big number of imigrants all over the world is not able to host few thousands of refugees. I am proud to be citizen of Gdynia which creates this museum. This is quite new museum in my town and it's new at every aspect. Shows story of Polish immigration through centeries. It shows how often we were refugees and how often others helped us. This museum was opened two years ago => just in time to show how selfish we are. Anyhow, the most interesting museum in my town. Really.

I was hoping that this museum will be more interesting - it has a relatively big, interactive exhibition related to the migration of Poles. As Poes are one of the most hateful nation when it comes to welcoming migrants, I was curious to see how this exhibition answers some important questions. Unfortunately, the narrative is biased - this museum could be a great opportunity to influence behavior of the society and teach Poles how to be more tolerant and welcoming, as their predecessors were welcomed in other countries. The exhibition mostly highlights the miserable life of Polish migrants and unfair treatment they've experienced abroad - which was not always the case. At the same time, there is only one voice criticising current attitude towards migrants coming to Poland. On top of this, the temporary exhibition is awful - there are almost no descriptions at all.

A very modern and interesting exhibition. Very interactive - available not only in Polish! it is worht to see where Poles emigrated over centuries and why.
we spent there nearly 3 hours - cool entertainment on rainy days. After the visit it is worth to try a cake at Cafe Bistro or a meal at Mondo di Venegre - a new restaurant open on the 2nd floor of the museum.

I rode a bicycle 16km from Sopot to the Museum, partly through good bike lanes, partly misled to building sites that Google maps had no clue about, to be greeted by a man at the door of the Museum letting me know it was closed on that day.
If your museum - a top attraction in your city - is closed exceptionally, it's I think your duty to mention it on listings like TripAdvisor. I am in the region only briefly and won't make it there a second time.

Very interesting exhibition, showing the history of Polish emigration through ages. Situated in a historical building in Gdynia port. Worth seeing. It's good to have at least 2 hours to see the exhibition properly.

The museum has a deep insight of the pre WWI and Pre WWII emigration , with artifacts and stories of where Poles emigrated , in those days . I was more interested in the Emigration of Poles from the Communist Era , of which my and my wife's family is a member. To my disappointment , the exhibit was very limited with information on this era . There were mentions of the Batory emigrations , but were very short and not very detailed . There was a mention of the post war assistance , of the Polonia abroad , Mainly from the USA , that was organizing and sending assistance back home . There also was a mention of PAC , Polish American Congress , formation and assistance that the organization provide to the DP's of Polish nationality , after WWII.

You will find here many interesting documents and descriptions of emigration from the past and present Polish lands. A lot of reading. All descriptions also in English. Relatively little number of artifacts.
The ability to check your family connections on computers before entering the main exhibition.
