Palace on the Isle (Museum)
EUR 11 per person
The Palace on the Isle is the centrepiece of the Royal Lazienki Park. We recommend including the royal private residence during a visit to the park. The interiors are quickly visited and make the overall impression of the whole complex more interesting.
Short description of the exhibition
T he palace has two floors. On the ground floor, there are reception rooms for the guests. The upper floor contains the private quarters of the king and his chamberlain. All rooms can be visited independently. We recommend purchasing a museum brochure when buying tickets, as it describes and explains the most important exhibits; otherwise, it’s “just” another summer residence of yet another king.
On the ground floor, there are 11 smaller and larger rooms. The first floor has a division of the living space, comprising 8 rooms. A relatively large portion was available to the chamberlain.
We also recommend our descriptions of the Palace on the Island as well as the entire Lazienki Park complex. This way, you can get the most out of your visit to the palace.
Why doe recommend this museum?
T he Palace on the Isle has a very long history and tradition. Moreover, it is a personal project of the last King of Poland Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
It is very controversial whether King Poniatowski was a successful king. However, his achievements and accomplishments in the fields of art, culture and architecture were undisputed. And this very palace is the best example of his outstanding sensitivity to the fine arts.
The palace was badly damaged, but the building fabric has been preserved. The reconstruction has been outstandingly successful. One could even think that the palace had remained untouched for centuries.

E-ticket on website of museum
The museum does not have an online booking system. You can book tickets in advance by phone or email (except on Friday).
– There is only one café in the park (mostly overcrowded) and a kind of kiosk. We therefore recommend taking water and something to drink with you.
– Dogs are not allowed in the park, even if leashed.
– Be sure to buy an information booklet at the checkout. These little booklets are really helpful.
The park and the palace are barrier-free, but the slope is relatively steep, which can be a bit of a hassle when it rains, as long as wheelchairs are involved. So be careful.
