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

Gdansk is a wonderful city with so much to experience and do. This is our first time here but certainly not our last! Lovely!

This is such a historic site. The building is beautiful. Make sure you get the lift to the roof and look over Gdansk.

great to see the history of the Trade Union that revolutionized a country & the story of the August 1970 uprising.

Makes you see Gdansk in a different light. Worth a visit great building, think we spent longer in the coffee shop than the exhibition though...

A must see. Amazing building and an opportunity to relive an important piece of history exactly where it happened. Great interaction. The walking guides are excellent and the feel and space of the museum takes you there. Highly Recommended

The audiovisual aspects of this museum make you feel like you were a part of the solidarity moment. Extremely modern in their approach to showing how Communism was expelled from Poland.

You can buy tickets there. It was not very crowded when I went contrary to other museums.
