The Naval Museum


Nowhere in Poland is there such a valuable and large collection of naval armaments and naval equipment as in this Gdynia museum. The permanent exhibition tells about the 100 years of the Polish Navy in an extremely interesting way, using modern multimedia solutions. Many monuments of the 20th century ship artillery were dismantled from the ships and placed in a place of honor. They include, among others WWII anti-aircraft cannon that was once part of the equipment of ORP "Błyskawica". In the museum, we will also move to the world of old sailing ships. There is also an open space outside the building for visitors.
