The new building in the shadow of Gdańsk’s Crane is the Maritime Culture Centre. Spread over 4 floors, kids will find the interactive displays of interest as they learn about the sea, marine technology and how the two work together. There is a permanent exhibition entitled Boats of the Peoples of the World (Working Boats), which presents scores of small craft from all over the world, including Native American dugout canoes, a fabulous little English coracle and numerous small fishing and trade vessels from the Far East. The third floor currently houses an interesting temporary exhibition telling the stories and displaying the treasures recovered from local shipwrecks and a second call Statki Nasza Pasja (Polish: Ships. Our Passion). There are plenty of good English descriptions plus the Cała Naprzód (Polish: Full Steam Ahead) on the fourth floor, which offers great photo opportunities of the river from its terrace.
