W Radziwiłłowskim stały domu...

Permanent exhibition at the Museum in Nieborów and Arkadia, a branch of the National Museum in Warsaw.

The exhibition will present objects from the former Radziwiłł residences located in what are now Belarus, Lithuania, Ukraine, Poland and Germany. For the first time a unique collection of porcelain from Korts and Baranovka, originating from the collection of the Radzivill princes from Balice, as well as 16th century armour and a horse headdress from the Nesvizh castle, will be presented to a wider audience.

For centuries, the magnificent Radziwiłł estates were furnished by successive owners with beautiful objects – paintings, furniture, handicrafts or magnificent library collections. The Radziwiłł palaces and castles were the focus of cosmopolitan cultural and social life, and the sublime collections of works of art underlined the rank, identity and prestige of the family. With each new generation, the family heirlooms, painstakingly collected over the years, grew in size.

The turmoil of war and subsequent historical disasters put an end to the family's power, shattering the order that had been established for centuries. Robbed and destroyed, the residences, stripped of their warmth and multi-generational history, remain today only a memory of past eras. Only a few of them have survived and today, as museums, they popularise the knowledge of one of the most powerful magnate families of the Republic.

The objects presented at the exhibition come from the collection of the Three Trumpets Foundation, the collection of Mr. Maciej Radziwiłł, the collection of Mr. Andrzej Wasilewski and the collection of Mr. Sylwester Rudnik.
