Advanced construction work

As part of the contract, the following construction and assembly works will be carried out: a wooden roof structure, a characteristic steel and wooden façade, installations: sanitary, electrical, telecommunication, together with the purchase and assembly of a part of the equipment of the new NMM branch.

Because in defining its mission, the museum has committed itself to act in accordance with the philosophy of social responsibility, sustainable development, responsible consumption and concern for the sensible management of the planet’s natural resources.

Therefore, a very important part of the investment will be the use of photovoltaic cells and so-called lower heat sources. This installation enables the heat pump to draw energy from a renewable source – air, water or ground. Thanks to this, the additional energy demand of the building will be at a minimum level. We will also devote a part of the exhibition to renewable energy sources, i.e. offshore wind energy. says Szymon Kulas, NMM Deputy Director for Administration and Technology.

New tourist attraction in Łeba

Undoubtedly, the National Museum in Łeba will be a unique facility in Poland, combining cultural, scientific and educational functions. The building will have a cubature of over 46,000 m3 and an exhibition area of about 3,500 m2.

The tenth branch of the NMM in Gdańsk was designed to preserve Polish heritage connected with the Baltic Sea for future generations. Therefore, the modern exhibition will guide visitors through the centuries of the history of Baltic shipping, presenting many aspects of the NMM’s underwater archaeological research. The space dedicated to fishing will focus around the main exhibit: a 25-metre steel cutter. The architecture of the new museum will refer to the sea, sandy shores and wind-filled sails. – adds Szymon Kulas.

Financial support from the state budget

The entire cost of the construction of the Łeba branch of the NMM is financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. They come from the state budget and the Culture Promotion Fund. Total value of the task: PLN 68,600,000. Value of funding from the state budget under the specific grant from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage: PLN 65,195,000. Value of the subsidy from the resources of the Culture Promotion Fund of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage: PLN 2,912,000.

The tender for the second stage of construction of the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and Baltic Fisheries in Łeba was won by the consortium of Poleko Budownictwo Sp. z o.o. and Przedsiębiorstwo Budowlane “Budomex” s.c. Ryszard Ankiewicz and Michał Ankiewicz. The construction work will be carried out on the basis of a design prepared by the Plus3-Architekci studio from Warsaw. According to the contract, the construction and assembly works should be completed by the end of 2023.

My love for scuba diving started as a 12-year-old in the Canary Islands, at which time I took my first Open Water Diver course. This love for the blue turned into a huge passion that accompanies me to this day. Although blue is hard to come by in the Baltic, no conditions are terrible for me. In this sport, I find peace, patience, courage, focus, and balance. I have recently started to engage in underwater modeling and I am fulfilled with this.
