Definately worth a look, but you need to check to make sure the museum is open. If you don't want to go in to the museum you can look at if from the dock side.

This would be a cool visit for someone with kids or ship buffs. As a 19yo solo traveller it wasn't quite what I would've hoped for. The price was very cheap with the student discount and It is entertaining especially inside the ship. I was...More

As a ship geek, this was amazing. All areas of the ship are accessible and you are on board as long as you want. There are some lovely views along the river. Soldek is very important to the city of Gdansk and this shows throughout...More

But it is ever present in the riverscape. Found out the relevance to it and who it was named after from the Sala BHP visit so that added to it. It's berthed opposite the crane and well, you can't miss it really.

The SS Soldek is an old steam powered freighter tied up in Gdańsk and is now a museum. A small fee of about £1.70 will get access to a maritime relic. About 30 minutes to an hour is all you need for this central attraction....More

Inexpensive museum where you are able to freely wander round a historic ship (first ship built in Poland after the second word war). Learn what it was like to work, sleep and eat at sea. Worth a visit.
