The Bene­fac­tors of the Gdańsk Museum are a group of over 300 people, women and men from Gdańsk, Poland and from abroad: Ger­many, Great Bri­tain, Uni­ted Sta­tes, Rus­sia, Nor­way, Canada, Israel and Austra­lia.

We hope that this num­ber will soon incre­ase thanks to the pro­gram for any­one who wishes to donate items rela­ted to the history of Gdańsk and its’ inha­bi­tants. We accept tokens regar­dless of their age, form or pre­se­rva­tion state. The items can be a heri­tage object from distant times as well as a testi­mony of ongo­ing events. We accept all objects:

  • toys;
  • old pho­to­gra­phs;
  • old books (as well as manu­scripts);
  • pain­tings, gra­phics & posters
  • coins
  • mili­tary items (weapons)
  • clo­thing;
  • amber & jewelry;
  • other items.

The items can be sli­gh­tly dama­ged, worn off – the most impor­tant cri­te­ria is their uni­que history con­nec­ted with Gdańsk, which dese­rves to be told and kept in the Museum for future gene­ra­tions.

In return for dona­ting the item to our col­lec­tion:

  • The Bene­fac­tor is enti­tled to free admis­sion to the Museum and its’ bran­ches. Guests of the Bene­fac­tor (up to 5 people) are enti­tled to a redu­ced tic­ket;
  • We will also devote tem­po­rary exhi­bi­tions to the donors and their memo­ra­bi­lia, ena­bling the inte­gra­tion of the com­mu­nity of Gdańsk history enthu­sia­sts from all over the world;
  • All Bene­fac­tors rece­ive a disco­unt on the publi­ca­tions of the Gdańsk Museum (a 10% disco­unt);
  • If we publish a book with an image of the dona­ted item, the publi­ca­tion is given to the Bene­fac­tor free of charge;
  • We pro­vide free digi­ti­za­tion of the dona­ted souve­nirs and place their image along with infor­ma­tion about the donor on our Online Col­lec­tion por­tal.

Start dona­ting now by e-mailing us at: histo­ria­@mu­zeumg­


The disco­unt on the publi­ca­tions is gran­ted only after e-mail con­tact at and pro­vi­ding the Bene­fac­tors Card num­ber and the iden­tity of its owner.
