Reviews

I went on this trip during teacher's conference that took place in Gdansk. I had no expectations before I came to Gdansk for a long weekend and was completely blown away! Absolutely beautiful, very high standard in general and lots to do and see. I was shocked that museums can be so involving and interesting. I will definitely come back with my students. European Solidarity Centre has really well-developed exhibition. Absolutely fantastic. So detailed, so interesting. So proud of the Polish people. A Must Visit. Absolutely amazing experience.
Berit
Wonderful and inspiring museums. Thanks to audio guides we could discover them in our own pace and along personal interests. Many of the exhibits were thoughtfully curated and intriguing. I particularly enjoyed the use of art to express the Solidarity message. Interesting and inspiring places that handle COVID risks well. Highly recommended for anyone interested in modern European history.

Questions and answers

How long does the tour take?

It greatly depends on your own interests and how thoroughly you want to explore both museums. As you walk with audioguides you are welcome to choose which topics interest you and which do not. Both museums are very modern and were specially designed to promote personal discovery and not group sightseeing. We count the whole trip for 8 h but the visit can also be shorter if you wish so.
