About the Centre

It was established by the Councillors of the West-Pomeranian Voivodship Regional Council on 12th September 2017. None of the Councillors was against the establishment of a new cultural institution. This is a statement of the desirability of activities leading to the creation of a modern science centre in Szczecin.

The Centre refers to the heritage and activity of Jerzy Stelmach, professor of the University of Szczecin.
The Maritime Science Centre will be – as the marshal of the voivodship Olgierd Geblewicz said: „another reason for our generation’s pride”.
