The maritime museum of Gdansk is located on noth side of the harbour. A small ferry connects the two sides. The exhibitions are very good set up and covers the maritime history from ancient time, up til today.

I highly recommend visiting this museum, even if (like me) you have no particular interest in ships. Everything is well presented, with information in English available on laminated sheets. It's worth bearing in mind the museum is spread over several sites, so you need to...More
