Cultural heritage in a changing climate”. Oslo Forum 2021 28.- 30. september

Cultural Heritage in a Changing Climate. The Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Arts Council Norway will host the 7th forum of the Baltic Region Heritage Committee (BRHC).


Climate change is a threat to cultural heritage. We live in a time with rapid changes; both environmentally and politically. All the countries in the Baltic Region have signed the Paris Agreement and committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This commitment means that we must act immediately to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with 50 percent by 2030. Oslo Forum 2021 aims to mobilize the cultural heritage sector to action.

Artistic Plein-Airs „Impressions – Blue”


Can the sound of waves become a relief and respite for a man entangled in a stressful job and pandemic issues of the modern world?

The Polish artists participated in an international artistic plein-airs „Impressions – Blue” and interpreted the marine symbols anew.

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.
