Maritime museum offers 3 different museums to be visited on the both sides of the river Motlawa. The Soldek ship is the bonus actually being the 4th museum belonging into the Maritime museum. Recommended place to visit!

The museum is nice. Not interesting for children, no English labels only some explanation in a folder. It is nice and not that expensive

Bought a ticket (23 PLN) to have access to all features of the museum. Despite this did not get access to the 3rd floor of the museum itself. Found the only interesting feature was the old steamship Soldek. The rest really was not much

You could buy a ticket that got you into the crane, the soldek ship, the granary and also a return trip on the ferry which I would recommend buying. The museum was very good and very interesting.
