Beautiful palace and amazing contents. Very reasonable price structure. Puts U.K to shame! The light display is an experience not to be missed. Brought tears to our eyes as the lights come alive to the music, building up to a crescendo. Absolutely amazing.

A fine palace, and really interesting to see, as it is one of the few buildings not destroyed in the war. There was lots to see inside, and really informative. The only downside was the staff, who seemed to be posted in every room staring at all the tourists. They must be paranoid with people who might touch things but... More

Not far away from the city center and very easy to reach with a taxi which are not expensive in Poland, specially for us with Euros The garden is beautiful with amazing corners for great pictures. A visit to the museum is a true pleasure and you will take many pictures just like me. Spent hours enjoying the beauty of... More

The palace can easily be reached on public transport, and is about five minutes' walk away from the bus terminus, clearly signposted. When we visited in January, the gardens were obviously not in full bloom, so can't comment on those, and the upper floor of the palace was closed for renovation. Nevertheless, what was open still justified a few hours... More

Wilanow palace is a real gem, which you must not miss if you visit Warsaw. It is outside the city, but not too far from central part of Warsaw - you can get a taxi (it is not expensive). If the weather is nice, then a stroll in the gardens would be a very pleasant way to enjoy the summer... More

My favorite part of visiting this palace outside of central Warsaw were the lovely rose gardens, but this should be on any visitors list of must-do's in Poland. It was built as a summer residence for king Jan III Sobieski but was expanded several times over the decades. It's now one of the most important museums in Poland. Great adventure... More

We came to see the lights at Christmas and the Mapping on the Palace Frontage. It was excellent and magical. A great deal of effort had gone into making this enchanting for both adults and children. Well worth the quite long bus journey to get there.

Ok..Truth is the palace is majestic both outside and inside. Unfortunately our visit was marked by the impoliteness of the people working there. We visited the palace at 2.30pm, because we wanted to finsh our tour there and then head to the Gardens' lights show which opens at 4pm. The employees were very rude, looking at us and the other...

We enjoyed beautiful Christmas lights! They have five different exhibits, with some timed to music. It's 10 zl per adult to enter this wonderful winter wonderland. I'm not sure how long it's open but we certainly enjoyed the lights well after Christmas and had the place to ourselves. It's my understanding that they do this every year. It's fabulous -... More

Great to come and visit a beautiful palace like this, many things to see. However, just careful with closing time because it close very early. Worth to visit
