Admission free visits to the renovated Old Orangery and the Palace on the Isle, the "Flowers in a Glass Vase" painting exhibition (by Abraham Mignon), and a jazz concert by Grzech Piotrowski - these are the main attractions of the Night of Museums in the Royal Łazienki, which will be held on 14 May. Our visitors will also receive commemorative coins.
At this year’s Night of Museums, during several evening hours, until 2:00 a.m., it will be possible to see the Royal Łazienki in an interesting, nocturnal perspective.
The visits to the Old Orangery will start at 7:00 p.m. In addition to the Royal Sculpture Gallery and the Royal Theatre, visitors will see the "Treasures of the Warsaw Mint 1766-1868” exhibition, organised for the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the Mint of Poland.
In front of the entrance to the Old Orangery, an 19th century knuckle-joint press will be displayed; it will press coins, which have been specially designed for this occasion and which will be given to our guests as souvenirs.
In the Palace on the Isle - between 7:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. - we invite visitors to the stately rooms of this classicist building, and to visit the exhibition of the famous painting from the Mauritshuis Museum in the Hague - "Flowers in a Glass Vase”, by Abraham Mignon.
In front of the Palace on the Isle, a minter will stand; it will press commemorative badges for the visitors to the Royal Łazienki for the occasion of the Night of Museums.
Without a doubt, the attraction of the evening will be the jazz concert by Grzech Piotrowski - a remarkable musician and composer. At 9:30 p.m., he will perform the "One World” project on a specially built scene on the water in front of the Palace on the Isle. The exceptional music will be accompanied by illuminations.
The Museum’s sponsor - PZU - will prepare a multimedia zone for visitors near the Officer Cadets School, where commemorative pictures from the visit to the Royal Łazienki will be printed.
The Night of Museums in the Royal Łazienki will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The event is co-organised by the Mint of Poland.
