“Speak Polish?”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

If you speak Polish and are passionate about maritime matters, this is your place, otherwise don't waste your time and money.

The archaeological museum is much better and have most displays explained in English.

“One of the Old Worlds Largest Ports”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Gain an understanding of how and why this port and especially its cranes were so important to the movement of commerce in the North Atlantic. Because of the technology the Poles possessed at this time they created a flourishing center of commerce. The museum gives you an insight as to how commerce evolved in this part of the world and how Poland played an important role in its development.
