The National Maritime Museum (NMM) in Gdansk, Poland will host the 2nd ICMM Northern European Workshop in its newly built Shipwreck Conservation Centre in Tczew, a branch of NMM, on 22-23 May 2017 


The workshop programme will consist of short presentations about current exhibitions, investments, and scientific projects carried out or planned in Northern European maritime museums.

The focus during the workshop in Tczew will be on three themes:

-       conservation and making objects availabe in ’study/storage’ spaces in museums;

-       education activities and working with audiences and the disabled;

-       digtal documentation of archaeological objects/virtual content of museum collections

During the meeting staff of NMM will arrange guided workshop tours in the new building and nearby exhibitions in Vistula River Museum. The tours will focus on accesibility and special programmes which have been prepared for buildings like the Shipwreck Conservation Centre in Tczew.

Workshop participants are invited to present short papers (up to 10-15 minutes) on the themes mentioned above.


The call for papers is now open and will close on 30 April 2017. Please submit an outline of a paper you would like to present, on one of the themes shown above.
