The aim of the trip is the park palace complex of the Zamoyski family's in Kozlowka, the pearl of late baroque architecture of the world class. The museum was founded on the basis of The ministry of Culture and Art decision of 4 November 1949 under the name of National State Museum, later it was named National Museum Center. From 1955-1976 it was operating as the Central Museum Warehouse of Ministry of Culture and Art. In 1976 it was once again opened to the public The Museum-Palace in Kozlowka, since 1992 operating under the name of Zamoysky Museum in Kozlowka.

The interiors of the palace are from the break of 19th and 20th centuries. The beginnings of the park palace complex are dated back to the first half of 18th century. The owners Tekla nee Pepłowski and Michał Bielinski built the castle, a stable, a coach house, two guardhouses. While Konstanty Zamoyski was the owner at the break of the 19th and 20th century, it was enlarged and re-built. Northern guest room, chapel and the theatre room were added.

During the re-constructure in 1898-1911 the interior of the castle were given new decor: neo-rococo and neo-regency plafonds, marble fireplaces, Meissen stoves and decorative oak parquet floors. The rooms were furnished in the style of the Second Empire. Pictures and mirrors in rich gold plated frames were hung on the walls and the windows veiled with silk damask or embroidered velvet curtains and pelmets. The interiors were furnished with high quality furniture from baroque to characteristic for the second half of 19th century neo-styles. The interiors of the palace have retained the character, layout, architectural layout, ***** and authentic equipment from the times of Konstatny Zamoyski.
