The permanent exhibition at the Palace of the Princes Czartoryski Museum displays the most valuable art collection in Poland, and one of the most valuable ones in Europe. The exhibition not only includes masterpieces of world painting such as Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine or Rembrandt van Rijn's Landscape with the Good Samaritan, but also works of painting, sculpture, crafts, military or applied arts. It is also an immense collection of souvenirs presenting Poland's history.
A unique walk through the 21 halls of the Princes Czartoryski Museum begins at the Podest, which displays two monumental genre canvas paintings by Jan Piotr Norblin. Further on, there are rooms dedicated to the Czartoryski family, which will take visitors to the rooms showing the history of Poland: from the time of the Jagiellonians to the end of the First Polish Republic. On the first floor of the Museum, viewers will also see the most beautiful works of religious art. The rooms further on will take visitors to a completely different scenery - the world of Far Eastern art.
Visiting the second floor begins with the Antique Salon, and then moves on to the room dedicated to Renaissance art. From there, you can go to the room where Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine is displayed. The following rooms will take viewers on a journey through the art of the Middle Ages, the art of 15th-17th century Northern Europe - up to Rembrandt's time. The second floor in the Polish Room shows mementoes, mainly from the Temple of the Sibyl in Puławy, and in the outbuilding rooms - library collections and a set of graphics and drawings.
