Volunteer guides of the Emigration Museum are a varied group of individuals with one thing in common – a passion for talking about history. Every one of them went through training courses conducted by professional guides and lecturers. They learned not only the history of emigration and the concept behind the permanent exhibition of the Emigration Museum but also about body language and public speaking. Everything to help them create their own style of tour guiding. The Emigration Museum pays particular attention to the accessibility of the exhibition for the disabled, and that’s why the training also provided the skills necessary in this respect.

Permanent exhibition in Emigration Museum tells the history of emigration from the Polish lands from the 19th century all the way up to the present. It recounts the stories of Poles who emigrated at various periods, to various places and for various reasons. The narrative begins with the Great Emigration, through the Industrial Revolution, mass emigration to the United States, life in the Brazilian jungle, society in Chicago, the dramatic fate of people during and after World War Two, the difficult years of the Polish People’s Republic, and ends in modern times with Poland joining the European Union.
The exhibition allows you to feel and understand what it meant to emigrate, it shows us the reality of a sea crossing for 3rd class passengers – from the moment of embarkation, through the voyage itself, both on and below deck, all the way to the immigration procedures on the famous Ellis Island in the United States. Among the many attractions that await visitors, there is a large multimedia installation of a globe dedicated to the Polish presence in the world, and the “Batory Under Construction” project, which features the world’s largest model of a passenger ship.
