"Sołdek" and the Crane are closed to visitors

We kindly inform you that the museum ship "Sołdek" and the Crane remain closed to visitors due to renovations.


The Crane - a branch of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk

A New Glow For the Crane


Gdańsk Crane – a branch of the National Maritime Museum – is undoubtedly a city icon and one of the most recognizable symbols of Pomerania. In February we conducted a survey to gauge community's expectations as to the refurbishment of the interior. Today we are proud to announce that, beginning in 2021, we will commence the restoration project. The landmark crane is going to get a new glow, while its unique character will be preserved, while taking in account the needs of the local community. The programme is funded by the European Economic Area.

'Sołdek' returned to her harbour


Rows of shining rivets on black hull plates, snow-white wheelhouse. The first ship built in Poland after the end of World War II, the collier (today museum ship) Sołdek looks as if she's been just commissioned. On Saturday, 19th December 2020 the Sołdek returned from her most extensive overhaul in 35 years, performed by the Józef Piłsudski "Remontowa" Shipyard in Gdańsk. She's now moored in her usual place at Ołowianka Island.

"Sea Battle" - theatre convention and richness of details


The National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk collects historical artefacts related to the maritime history. In the scope of the fine arts collection, from the start of its operation, one of the Museum's priorities has been creation of a collection of paintings by the former Dutch School in such a way as to present a synthetic overview of the main trends and achievements of the Dutch seascapists.
