Royal Palace (The Wroclaw Palace), formerly the Palace of Prussian kings is currently the Wroclaw City Museum. The baroque building of The City Museum of Wroclaw was built in 1719. In those days it used to be lords and magnates residence. Over the centuries it was rebuilt many times. There were added some extensions such as south-west (later destroyed) and south.

After the difficult years of war palace was restored and created as an ethnographic and archaeological museum. In 2009, after few further renovations, there was created The City Museum of Wroclaw with Baroque Garden where visitors could admire an exhibition “1000 years of Wroclaw”. It consists of almost three thousands museum pieces. The Royal Palace contains two interesting collections: the Archaeological Museum and Ethnographical Museum, the latter illustrating Silesian folk history and art.
