WWII Museum

Gdańsk is the place where WWII started on the 1st of September 1939. This is probably why it is good to tell the story of this devastating conflict in this city. The museum was built for the sole purpose to commemorate WWII and opened in 2017.

The museum is divided into 18 sections and chambers and tells about WWII not only from Polish but also European perspective. ITS Polish travel agent suggest that you should reserve at least 2.5 h for the sightseeing of the museum but history enthusiasts can spend here even one whole day.

The European Solidarity Centre commemorates them and what lead to the change of Poland’s political system in 1989. The museum also cultivates and spreads the ideals of the union’s movement such as democracy, openness and solidarity in society and culture of dialogue. The exhibition covers almost 3,000 m2 on the first and second floors of the building. It is divided into seven rooms.

The museum was opened in 2015 and shows the history of emigration and explores many aspects of this phenomenon. The topic of emigration becomes more valid in contemporary world than ever and Gdynia exhibition answers many current questions and doubts about it. The exhibition presents the experiences of people leaving their homeland, their fears, hopes, as well as the causes and effects of emigration. It is a story about people embarking on a journey into the unknown, about the civilization and economic changes they experienced, about the legend of Gdynia and Polish ocean liners.
