We believe that the experience of the Polish road to freedom gives us civic energy even today and that the heritage of Solidarnosc (Solidarity) is still a source of invigorating ideas for Europe

We went here on the back of not being able to get into the Second World War museum. This museum was interesting although it could have been shorter as we felt that a lot of the history was repeated. Also my English remote guide kept...More

Very interesting and fascinating insight into recent Polish history, a must see attraction if visiting Gdansk. Staff seemed bored and disinterested and the layout was a little bit confused.

This fabulous museum explains everything about Solidarnosc, Lech Walesa and the process that leaded to liberation of Poland from communism. Videoguides are absolutly necessary. Museum not suitable for children (because of the thematics and because the visit lasts more than 3 hours)

You get an audio guide which takes you round and explains everything. My favourite part though was going up on to the roof as the view is great.

Great museum ! The visit is very interactive, you really feel like going back in history discovering the rising against communism. You get to learn a lot and though we spent nearly 3 hours there, we would have preferred tout stay a little bit longer....More
