Canal Museum It was founded in 2008 and is the latest branch of the Museum of the City of Łódź. It reveals previously unknown facts about the history of the city. Because on the one hand, almost no one has seen the Łódź underground (nearly 4,000 km of water pipes and canals!), and on the other – hardly anyone knows about the momentum and enthusiasm that in the 20s and 30s of the last century drove forward the construction of this underground maze. The Canal Museum is located under Plac Wolności (The Freedom Square) in the historic oval reservoir for rainwater built in 1926 with the aim of flushing sewage network in the city center.
The city’s most representative pedestrian route and at the same time, the longest shopping street in Europe, extending over the distance of 4.2 km. It concentrates numerous stores, as well as over 1000 restaurants and pubs. The street can be toured in a pulled rickshaw or on board a historic “tram”.

In summer season it is also possible to use the outer part of the complex, which lures visitors with its 3 pools, a beach with sunbeds and a spacious playground for children.
