The latest investment project of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk is the construction of the Shipwreck Conservation Centre with Studio Warehouse in Tczew. The construction works started in summer this year and its completion is scheduled for April 2016.
Collection of the National Maritime Museum in Gdansk is very diverse. It includes significant large-size objects, such as historic yachts and construction elements, including parts of medieval wrecks of boats and ships. Until the present, the Museum (just like other museums all around the world) has been experiencing problems regarding storage of large-size monuments. There has been no suitably equipped facility which could be used not only as storage and exhibition area, but also as research and conservation warehouse. The new institution in Tczew will fulfil all of these purposes.
Research, Studies, Exhibiting
Archaeological and conservation research as well as works conducted on objects excavated from water have contributed to the promotion of the Museum among other European institutions. Therefore, construction of the Shipwreck Conservation Centre with Studio Warehouse in Tczew is a natural and necessary step towards further development of the National Maritime Museum. The Shipwreck Conservation Centre with Studio Warehouse will serve not only as the Museum’s infrastructure facility, but also as attraction for Tczew residents and tourists visiting the Pomeranian Voivodeship.
