TAMH: Places to Visit
Gdansk: Central Maritime Museum
Opening Hours: Tues - Fri 0930 - 1600; Sat and Sun 1000-1600
Housed in several historic buildings (three granaries and the Great Crane Gate) on Danzig's waterfront, the museum tells the story of Poland and the sea. A busy underwater archaeological unit has produced many objects for display including bronze cannons and cannonballs from the Solen, a Swedish vessel sunk in the battle of Oliwa in 1627. There is a permanent exhibition devoted to author Joseph Conrad (Korzeniowski).
Also forming part of the museum's exhibits are the ships Soldek and the 'white frigate', the Dar Pomorza built in 1909.
