The European Solidarity Centre tour

Last update February 2024. 

The European Solidarity Center (The Solidarity Museum) – the recently-built Gdansk landmark located in the Gdansk Shipyard, which is just a 5-minute walk from Gdansk Central Train Station, shows the complicated Polish history from the end of the Second World War up to the free elections in 1989.

The whole exhibition is interactive, so it is suitable for those of all ages. Children can explore and crawl inside a large police van, a crane, and an electric car. Adults will see plenty of artefacts from communist times which will help in understanding life behind the Iron Curtain. The visit at the European Solidarity Centre takes us back to the past and we will see how Poles, worked, lived, and fought for freedom. We will see how Lech Walesa – a worker from the shipyard become the leader of the first free trade union “Solidarity” and later becomes the first democratic president in post WW2 history. This modern museum also shows what was happening in other communist countries like: Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and the DDR (East Germany).
