This is one of Poland’s first public museums. It’s a bit remarkable that the museum even functions today, considering that most of its exhibits were annexed by the Nazi’s in WWII, but thankfully these were repatriated. Modelled on the Versailles by King John III Sobieski for his French wife, the palace is in the Baroque style. Its main exhibits are the gallery of Polish Royalty portraits and the Royal apartments, which include furniture, ceramics, clothing and some lovely paintings.
For most tourists though, the gardens are the true jewel of the place. Lovely the year around, but especially in the autumn, they make a delightful place to relax. A number of events and festivals are held on these grounds such as Summer Royal Concert, and occasionally, you’ll see a wedding party.

Wilanow Palace And Museum Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful building and garden, worth a visit. On Thursdays, access to the main building and the garden is for free. Tickets for some additional rooms are not but worth a visit as well. Rooms are nicely renovated and decorated. There is an audio tour, each room has sheets explaining some furniture and other pieces of art, both in Polish and English, and there is an app, providing loads of details about the history of the building, its past, and the renovation process. Especially the last few rooms are packed with paintings of the original art collection of King Jan III. This collections is quite diverse and does not contain any exceptional pieces but his love and vision for art and its accessibility to the people is admirable. We spent several hours in the palace and the garden and did enjoy every moment. Parking is for free but parking space is limited and it might require some creativity to find yourself a spot. But it is all worth it!
Nice tour of the castle but very little information in English. You have to pay separate to see the princesses room, but still very cheap tickets. The gardens are beautiful, there is a lake or river next to the garden behind the woods. I visited by day and it looked like the garden is very well light up at night.
One of the most beautiful palaces I’ve ever visited. You can download an app for free which can guide you through. It had some extraordinary paintings and sculptures. There is also a nice garden to walk.
Interesting for lovers of history or architectural designs of the past. Gardens are widely spaced out and beautiful. There is an entrance fee to the garden ($1.25) and a separate fee to enter the palace. (much more $ 😊)
Great Palace, which used to be a Royal palace. One can see gorgeous rooms and decorations. It is a little far away from the old town but it is worth the visit. In addition one can visit the gardens which are quite extensive and well maintained. The whole visit takes at least 2.5h
