Read about how we rank Things to Do.

The 188-acre Lazienki Królewskie Museum is one of Warsaw's most scenic locales. Here, you can go for a leisurely stroll through gardens, explore former palaces, admire various works of art or even catch a free piano concert (by the attraction's Frédéric Chopin monument). You'll also find amenities like a restaurant, gift shops and an amphitheater on-site.

Recent travelers raved about the Lazienki Królewskie Museum, citing its "lovely park" and "impressive" palaces – especially the Palace on the Isle – as highlights. However, several cautioned that the property can get crowded on weekends, so claim your spot early if you plan on attending one of the free piano concerts, which take place at noon and 4 p.m. every Sunday from May through September.

The Lazienki Królewskie Museum's grounds are free to visit every day between dawn and dusk, but the main buildings are only accessible Tuesday through Sunday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., with reduced hours on Mondays. Audio guides (which are included in adult admission but cost extra for kids) are not offered on select holidays and Thursdays, when each building waives entrance fees. If you visit on any day but Thursday, expect to pay 6 to 25 Polish zloty (or $1.50 to $7) per adult and 1 Polish zloty (less than 50 cents) for each person younger than 26. You'll need to buy a ticket for each building you want to see unless you have a Warsaw Pass or purchase an all-inclusive one- or three-day museum pass, which costs 3 to 50 Polish zloty (approximately $1 to $14) per person.

You'll find the property about 2 miles south of Old Town by the Vistula River. Parking is limited in the area, so using public transportation (the Politechnika metro station and multiple bus and tram stops sit nearby) is recommended. For more information, visit the museum's website.
