“Maritime museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

National Museum in Szczecin main branch is located on Wały Chrobrego in big grey building with a tower, and holds the name of Maritime Museum. The address given here (Staromłyńska Street) takes you to the Modern Art Galleries, which is also a branch of National Museum in Szczecin. Main building is in most attractive place in town, on high river Odra embankment. Boulevard below the museum is always full with special colourfull and loud events, so don't get pulled away from the entrance! The clue to the exhibitions is in the museums name: there's everything you would expect - sea, ships and seamen. If you are brave enough, after you got familiar with everything relating to sea, you can think about climbing some of 300 steps to get to the top of the viewing tower. This is one of at least three such structures in Szczecin (in really close distance) but with the hardest reach (narrow steep steps, no place to rest), so if you are not fit - go to the cathedral and let the lifts do the job for you. Ticket for the museum permanent exhibitions doesn't cover the tower, you need to spend a bit more for an opportunity to sweat out on the staircase.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Not your typical museum but worth a look for a spare 1-2 hours. Walk up to the tower for the views. There's limited space to stop on the way up and it's around 300 steps. Tower 5zl pp and Museum 8zl.

“Pomerania has her Museum...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

For my upteenth visit in Szczecin, I decided to pay a visit to the Muzeum Narodowe, since they are heavily promoting a new exhibition "The golden age of Pomerania". The regular permanent exhibition is rather short but extremely interesting. The second room, about sacred medieval art, is a gem, a couple of fantastic altars are on display, one of them of a size rarely seen in Europe. The truly great part is the new exhibition, bound to be permanent, about the collections of the Pomeranian Dukes. These Dukes have been very often mentioned in the guide book I bought, but information concerning them is scarce. Well, that was until now. This new part explores Pomerania under their rule and gives a good description of their court. An extensive series of portaits and a huge genealogical frame helps situating them on a timeline. The truly splendid room displaying their personal artefacts is highly enjoyable, garments back from 1610 are on display, items that were worn by these ghosts of the past. Icing on the cake, The exhibition fee, a ridiculous 10 zlotys (2,5 euros) gives you the ticket, a nice 50 pages booklet of great quality (available in polish, english or german) and an audioguide in polish, english or german. Better quality for such a small fee will you not find...
