Among the museum pieces collected by the Historical Section, a special place is occupied by valuable documents related to the past and tradition of Gdańsk University of Technology. These materials concern the history of the establishment and conducted scientific activity from the moment the university was created in 1904 until the present day. They illustrate the fate of Polish students and the activities of Polish student organizations. They also reflect the participation of the University of Technology employees in the creation of the university after World War II, the reconstruction of the city of Gdańsk and the organization of the Polish shipbuilding industry after 1945. The Historical Section also possesses unique collections of technical devices, drawing instruments, measuring and research tools of the former laboratory and workshop equipment.
