The European Solidarity Centre (ECS) is not only one of the newest museums in Poland, but also a museum presenting recent European history. A rust-coloured building resembling the crude hull of a ship under construction hides an exhibition presenting the bloodless upheaval staged by the shipyard workers of Gdańsk in 1980.

Walkative!’s top-notch guides, who are qualified to lead tours of the permanent exhibition, will take you on a journey through the events, places and people that sparked the end of communism in Europe. Learn the story of how the regime fell thanks to the determination of the workers, how four pieces of wood became a priceless document, how the proverbial jump over the fence became a leap for the Nobel Prize, how the warmth of human emotion melted the Cold War.

You are welcome to arrange a private tour at your convenience of the ECS main exhibition. We recommend a group of up to 10 people (maximum limit is 15 people). The tour of the ECS lasts approximately 2 hours. Our guides are ready to answer your questions, including those that go beyond the themes of the exhibition. The price of the tour does not include the price of the museum tickets. Call or write for details.
