In Warsaw, The Capital city of Poland is located the Warsaw Museum of Diving.

The museum is located at Grzybowska 88 Street. The opening hours are Tuesdays 11am to 6pm. The Museum can also be opened by request . The concept of the museum is to be of interest not only to divers but to young people interested in learning to dive. There are numerous other exibits from around the world including a Ludvig von Bremen helmet and a Schrader helmet. There are also various artifacts recovered from the sea bed and exibits to teach about environmental preservation topics.
