The main exhibition visiting route in the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk leads through the interior of three historic granaries. Visitors can see the abundance of treasures related to the history of shipping, boatbuilding, shipbuilding and sea battles in the Polish waters from medieval times to the 20th century. The exhibition narrative refers to the archaeological discoveries from the shipwrecks lying on the seabed, detailed layouts of shipyards and ports and the remembrance of remarkable figures associated with the sea. It also includes a large collection of the models of sailing ships, warships and commercial vessels, including ‘Vasa’, MS ‘Batory’ and ORP ‘Orzeł’. The exhibition is crowned with Maritime Gallery – the only one in Poland, so rich and diverse maritime painting exhibition with the 17th and 18th century paintings by the Dutch and Flemish painters, and paintings by artists such as Iwan Ajwazowski, Wojciech Weiss, Ferdynand Ruszczyc and Marian Mokwa.
