It was interesting to see the relics of life under communism and the way the people of Gdansk started the process of changing the political order.

Intriguing and creative displays. A captivating presentation of communist-era Poland and the Solidarity movement. I learned a lot.

Up there with Warsaw uprising museum and Checkpoint Charlie museum in Berlin for getting across a very important moment(s) in time. Well laid out, interesting info on the computers and a reminder that many of these events happened in my lifetime

This underground exhibit gives an interesting study of life under communism. It is near the entrance to the old Lenin Shipyard. There were many commentaries and photos by various dissidents that told of the unrest that led to the fall of communism. They are building a new above-ground museum, but I liked this old one.
