Family-friendly museum services

Room for baby care and baby feeding

Located on the ground floor of the Palace, the Small Child Room is available for families during opening hours, where breastfeeding is available in a comfortable, quiet environment, and baby food can be heated in the microwave.

Children's corner in the cafe

The Palace’s café is open daily during  opening hours. The café has a children’s corner for guests with small children, where families can come with a selection of coloring books, storybooks and children’s toys.

Baby carrier in the museum

In order to protect the narrow exhibition spaces of the Palace and the artworks, the exhibitions cannot be visited with a pram, our visitors can use a babycarrier. We can provide free rental media in the cloakroom (3 pieces are available). Strollers can be stored in the cloakroom. The Palace park, the café and the room with a small child can also be visited with a pram.

 

Step-stools and toilet reducers in washbasins

In the women's and men's washrooms available from the hall of the Palace, we also have a washbasin with a reducer, which makes  easier for children to use the toilet. The sign on the door of the washbasins helps our visitors to find their way. For easier access to hand washing, we have placed mobile step-stools.

Services in the park of the Palace

 

Baby-mama bench in the park 

The specially designed bench in the castle park offers a more comfortable solution for those arriving with a baby to carry out baby care activities outdoors (e.g. diapers, breastfeeding). We are proud that a baby-mama bench was made by a staff member of the Palace.

Barefoot trail in the park 

By the end of May 2021, the barefoot path in the Palace park was completed, which was implemented in cooperation with the gardener and shift colleagues. They can walk on a variety of 11 surfaces from the youngest members of the family to the older age group. We recommend the trail to all our visitors, regardless of age.

Children's corner in the permanent exhibition

In the permanent exhibition of the Palace, we have created a Children's Corner for our visitors with children, where it is possible to try out various fabulous, interactive games related to the history of the Palace. On the fairytale mat, additional play experiences await the children, where they can get acquainted with the building blocks shaping the Palace, as well as the fairytale figure of the Palace through games and storybooks. Please step on the fairytale rug without shoes, thank you!

Mouse Hunting Fairy Holes

Our free family game card can be found at the entrance of the permanent exhibition of the Palace. With the help of the game card, the children can get acquainted with the fairytale figure of the Palace, Prince Magnus Mousecastle, while also learning about the history of the Palace. In addition to Hungarian, the game sheet is also available in English and German. 

 

Garden page in the Palace park


It's time to slow down a bit ... If you want to  read under the trees of the Palace park, you can now choose something to read from our bookcase in the park every weekend!
What’s more, if you’re only missing a blanket for the perfect getaway, you choose one at the information office.
After reading, we look forward to returning the books and blanket so that we can delight others as well. The program is available from May to October during the opening hours of the Palace park.

Story cube – a new educational tool

Story cube – a new educational tool

Together with the Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów and the Italian non-governmental organisation Stazione Utopia, we exchange knowledge and experiences as well as train and teach how to encourage local communities gathered around museums to engage in voluntary work and how to talk about cultural, natural and historical heritage in an interesting manner. Together with our colleagues from Hungary and Italy, we have created a publicly available educational tool – the story cube that supports volunteers and educators in learning how to build a unique story, organise arguments, build independent judgments about the object or phenomenon in question, while incorporating their own stories and experiences. Activities implemented as part of the project: International Learning, Teaching, Training (LTT) meetings, during which a group of experts from Wilanów, Gödöllő and Florence selected in the programme exchanges good practice and then trains one another in areas such as working with volunteers and immigrants as well as creating an engaged community around institutions. Four meetings: two in Warsaw and two in Florence and Gödöllő, respectively, have been held during the course of the project. Transnational Project Meetings (TPMs) in each of the participating organisations help us implement our planned activities effectively. Developing an educational tool, known as the story cube. The tool supports the adult education personnel in contacting the local community and engaging it in activities related to the voluntary programme. An online seminar to discuss the experiences we have gained and disseminate the educational tool we have developed is to be held in January 2023. Writing a series of articles on informal adult education and engaging the local community in the activities of institutions. Feel free to check out the materials on the Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe (EPALE): Local community engagement in museum programs: practices, experiences and challenges and Też tak chcę! Story cube – a new educational tool   As part of the Erasmus+ project, “Museum of Communities”, along with our partners from the Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów and the non-governmental organisation Stazione Utopia in Florence, we have created a new publicly available educational tool.The story cube supports our work with volunteers in terms of creating engaging and unique stories about museum items. We have designed not one but two cubes: senses cube, to support the process of experiencing objects through our senses; mind cube, to encourage users to think and reflect critically. Story cubes allow the users to ask questions about heritage objects and look at them in a new manner, inspiring them to learn collectively and have a discussion. The tool may be used with both beginners and advanced storytellers. Story cubes are a universal solution to be used in adult education. The project has been co-financed by the European Commission from the Erasmus+ programme supporting strategic partnerships at a European level. Projects related to education and training promote the development of knowledge in Europe and make it possible to achieve the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy – sustainable development and social inclusion.

The queen's furniture has returned home!

The queen's furniture has returned home! Queen Elizabeth's personal furniture, dressing table and glass showcase arrived at the Royal Castle in Gödöllő   Dr. Tamás Ujváry, the managing director of the Royal Palace of Gödöllő Public Benefit Nonprofit Ltd., reminded that the castle operates as a real Sisi cult place. The building also celebrates its anniversary, as it was abandoned by the Soviet army thirty years ago and then opened in 1996, albeit only in part, to visitors in 1996. The anniversary is also connected with the arrival of the two special pieces of furniture, which were successfully repurchased with the help of the National Castle Program and the NÖF, said Dr. Tamás Ujváry. Speaking about the National Castle Program and the National Castle Program, which he supervised as a ministerial commissioner, Zsolt Virág said that they are aimed not only at the restoration of the buildings, but also at their mental rehabilitation. This includes returning any former furnishings to the walls, he noted. According to him, Queen Elizabeth's former dressing table and glazed display case appeared at an auction in Germany, where they were bought back at a starting price, and from Friday the public can meet the artefacts in the castle's permanent exhibition in the queen's dressing room.
