The Baroque Palace which was built at the end of the 17th century on behalf of Michał Stefan Radziejowski. In the palace there are works of art and equipment from the 17th-19th centuries. such as sculptures, paintings, graphics, furniture, bronzes, porcelain and glass. Currently, it is a museum which includes: the Baroque Garden, the Temple of Diana, the Gothic House and the Aqueduct in Arcadia. Over the years, the palace in Nieborów has won many awards, as well as the Gold Medal of the Minister of Culture and Art.

The Museum in Nieborów and Arkadia was established in 1945. It consists of the Radziwiłł Palace with a garden in Nieborów and the Romantic Garden of Helena Radziwiłłowa in Arkadia. Until the end of January 1945, the palace in Nieborów and the garden in Arkadia were in the area of the Nieborów-Mysaków property owned by Janusz Prince Radziwiłł, the owner of Olyck. In February 1945, the entire Radziwiłł family was deported by the NKVD services to the Soviet Union and imprisoned in a camp in Krasnogorsk. The then director of the National Museum in Warsaw, Stanisław Lorentz, in accordance with an earlier agreement with Radziwiłł, took care of the unique palace in Nieborów and its collections as well as the historic garden in Arkadia, immediately including them in the composition of the National Museum in Warsaw as its branch. This saved the palace and its collections from devastation and dispersion during the worst period of orthodox Stalinism.
