I had no time to go inside, but spent 1.5 hours wandering around the gardens. Lots to discover, peacocks and squirrels, fountains, follies, old chapels, grottos, serpentine paths, and so on. There's a cafe on the river side of the complex.

This would not appear to be a palace from the exterior. Its construction is fairly modern, and it is bright yellow in color. The center area has a large reflective pool with benches on which you can relax and feed one or more of the several peacocks on the grounds.

The palace and park complex is quite famous in Poland - the first Polish museum was founded here. Unfortunately that was a long time ago. The most of the palace is a research institute now, there are only a few rooms with the remains of the original exhibits. The architecture is quite impressive and the exhibition worth seeing. There are several other buildings in the park; as I understand it, some of them are open to public but only one every day. So if you want to enter Światynia Sybilli (the original museum) you need to have some luck. We had and it was disappointing - there is nothing there to see except walls and a lady guarding the place against tourists who didn't buy tickets. The park is huge, open to the public and not in a good order. There are no signs which way to go to the historical buildings, no information about them, lots of broken glass in some places. You have to pay for the toilet. All in all, Pulawy council should do something about it , the place has huge potencial and could be one of the most interesting places in the area. Now it's rather sad and forgotten.

One of the reviewers wrote that there is only 1 room to see in the museum. Actually there are extra 2 floors to see with interesting exhibits including a sarcophagus with Copernicus's remains (probably fake). Many artefacts but you need to know a bit of history of Poland to enjoy it.

I enjoyed my visit to this historic palace located in Pulawy, Poland. In addition to serving as the seat of the National Research Institute, a significant area of this palace serves as a museum. The grounds are impressive. This is a popular place. Persons interested in Polish history and architecture would enjoy visiting this site.
