Muzeum Miasta Gdyni is a city museum founded on January 1, 1983, by order of the city authorities. The main task of the museum is to collect historical documents and materials, photographs and publications related to the history of Gdynia. To date, the museum has amassed an impressive collection of over 50,000 different materials.
In the mid-70s, were outlined concrete plans to create a separate museum. Official permission for making the city museum was obtained from the Ministry of Culture and Arts in December 1982. The museum received at its disposal a building called "House of Abraham" and an exhibition pavilion. In 2002, construction began on a modern museum building, which was inaugurated on November 16, 2007, in the presence of Polish President Lech Kaczynski.
Nowadays, visitors to the museum can get acquainted with the history of Gdynia, from the very beginning, see the evolution from a small fishing village to an important international port during the period between the two world wars. A variety of unique photographic materials are designed to highlight the city's maritime history. Here you can see old documents, uniforms of sailors and commanders, memorabilia brought from distant countries.
Recently, the museum has opened a temporary exhibition dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the port, which tells about the origin and development of the sea gates of Gdynia.
