Project main objective: improving the management and protection of cultural heritage by providing appropriate conditions for cultural activities through the conservation, renovation and modernisation of the Crane.
The project implementation includes the reconstruction and modernization of the historic port crane in Gdańsk, the oldest facility of this type in Europe and the installation of the new permanent exhibition. The construction and conservation work include e.g., conservation of brick walls, repair of roofing and wooden structure. The reconstruction of all floors in both towers and a part of wooden lift will make it possible to modify the existing sightseeing route and make the previously unused space available to visitors. The narration of the new permanent exhibition covers the city port life in its glorious times and the history of trade between Gdańsk residents and merchants from other European cities. The Project also includes plans to prepare a diverse cultural and educational offer and cooperation with the Norwegian partners.
