Architectural accessibility

The Museum of King Jan III's Palace at Wilanów


  • The parking lot and the nearest stop are about 300 m from the palace. Several routes lead from the nearby bus stops and the parking lot to the palace. You can reach the museum directly on an uneven surface, which is partly made of cobblestones (so-called cat heads), and partly it is a HanseGrand surface. From the museum side, you can download a palace and garden plan with marked difficulties and architectural facilities. The plan indicates the most convenient routes to the palace from the nearest bus stops and from the parking lot. 

  • The most convenient crossing is the strips with a light signal located at the McDonald's bar. We cross to the other side of the street, reach the fence, then we go right and we keep walking straight on the sidewalk. Along the way, we pass a series of buildings and a church on the left, after which the museum grounds begin. 

  • The description of the route from the bus loop to the cash register and then to the palace is also available in a text format and as a verbal description in an mp3 format. 

  • The museum box office is located in a building at St. Kostki Potocki Street. You enter inside via stairs. For people with mobility difficulties, a post with a special button is placed in front of the box office. After pressing the button, the cashier will come to you. 

  • The entrance to the palace, available for people with mobility disabilities, is located in the right wing of the palace (from the Green Hall). 

  • For people moving in wheelchairs, the ground floor of the palace and the park are available. The museum has deployable ramps that facilitate entering and exiting the palace and moving around the ground floor of the palace. IMPORTANT! Due to the historical character of the place, not all thresholds have been removed yet, and the length of the ramps that we can use in the current conditions allows to achieve a slope angle of 24% when entering and exiting.

  • Please note! Due to temporary technical difficulties, people moving on electric wheelchairs temporarily do not have the possibility to enter the palace. Inconveniences will be removed as soon as possible.

  • The first floor of the palace and the Banquet Hall and the -1 level are not accessible for people with mobility disabilities, especially those moving in wheelchairs. 

  • In every room in the palace, there is a chair that a person needing a rest can use.

  • Additional seating has been prepared in the North Gallery, the South Gallery, and the Raspberry Salon.

  • A toilet adapted to the needs of people moving on wheelchairs is located in the Rose Garden. 

  • You can enter the building and all its rooms with an assisting dog and a guide dog.


  • Only level 0 is available for visitors. 

  • The entrance for visitors is accessed by steps with a total height of 36 cm. In addition, at the entrance, there is a threshold 6 cm high. The museum has deployable ramps that facilitate entering and exiting the Orangery.

  • The space in the Orangery is large and accessible for people moving in wheelchairs.

Pump House

  • The Pump House building is not accessible for people moving in wheelchairs.

  • The path to the building is covered with an uneven surface. The space in front of the building is paved with a granite cobblestone with a hewn surface.

  • In front of the entrance doors, there is a threshold 7 cm high.

  • Inside the building, from the entrance area to the main Pump House area, where workshops are held, stairs lead (a total of 85 cm to overcome). At the moment, there is no possibility to overcome these stairs. According to the recommendations of the audit, the installation of a lift is being considered.

Villa Intrata

  • The approach to the building is paved with an uneven surface – granite cobblestone with a hewn surface.

  • The Villa Intrata building is not accessible for people moving in wheelchairs due to the stairs located at each of the three entrances to the building.

  • An accessibility audit has been carried out for the building and we are working on implementing the optimal solution.
