“Nice presentation of nautical items of the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

Well done, nice to have a section for kids to play & learn about shipping from different aspects of being on ships, to loading containers, or how waves work! Nice to see how other countries boats differ from being on the Baltic Sea. Was a great way to spend a day (and keep out of the intermittent showers of the day)!

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

You can buy a ticket that gives tou access to all four venues. The staff in the first and more modern museum acted very confused and poorly trained.

“Not easy if you can't read polish, but do visit the ship”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

Spread over several floor there is a lot to see, but unfortunately the English interpretation cards aren't easy to match with the exhibits. Old fashioned displays - lots of text and little interaction, so I think children would find it very boring.

The ship is the star of the exhibits. Do watch the video at the beginning then go down to the engine room, squeezing past the coal burners. Staff couldn't be more friendly even with our sad lack of polish.

“Truly excellent but strange opening hours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

There are 3 separate buildings involved and you must make sure you buy a ticket that gives you entry to all three. There is a little problem with the staffs abaility to speak English!
