Online museum classes
We would like to invite you to participate in museum's online live classes designed for schools. During the lesson, children will take a virtual tour through King’s palace and his gardens. Our experienced educators will run the classes in the form of conversations, presentations and quizzes. We want to share our passion for the history, nature and re-enactment and tell you the unknown story of Wilanów!
Come and meet us!
We adjust the level of the classes to the needs of the group.
History classes: A Visit to the King
Although King Jan III will not be our host in his palace in person, we will get to know him quite well. We will learn whom he called “invincible passion”, how many books he gathered in his royal library and what he fancied reading. We will answer the question if he really went to the Battle of Vienna wearing sandals. We will also learn about interiors of the palace and its creators: painters, sculptors, architects and numerous residents.
Nature classes: Nature Observatory at Wilanów Gardens
The Wilanów residence is surrounded by wonderful royal garden. To the east of the palace there is a two-levelled Baroque garden, whereas to the north and south there are picturesque landscapes known as English gardens. During our online classes we will observe and distinguish plants and animals found in Wilanów. We will learn how to describe local and foreign tree species. We will find features characteristic for Baroque, English and English-Chinese gardens and discuss the role of the sculptures and architecture in the greenery.
