The hallmark of the Dąbrowa Landed Gentry Museum are the classical brick buildings, a typical example of manor house architecture. A pond and hundred – year old orchard within a historic park surrounds the manor. The manor house and the outhouse were erected around 1852 for the Dobrzyńscy family. The following owners included the Bujalscy and the Faytt families, whereas the last owner was Ignacy Fonberg. Between 1889 and 1890, the manor house hosted Stefan Żeromski, a private tutor at nearby Łysów estate. After the Second World War, the buildings served as a school and a preschool.
In 2011, works were initiated to prepare the complex for its new role. On 9ᵗʰ October 2015,there was a grand opening of the Landed Gentry Museum. The stylish interior décor from the turn of the 20ᵗʰ century (the manor office, the lady of the house’s room, bedroom, living room, dining room kitchen, bathroom) transports us back to the atmosphere of the bygone era. Historic furniture, objects representing decorative arts and paintings catch the eye of the visitor. In the park, one can see buildings formerly associated with farming: a granary, dovecote, smoking chamber, apiary and vegetable garden.
The Manor & Park complex in Dąbrowa is an excellent conference, open-air workshop, theme workshop, and business meeting venue. The renovated interiors of the manor, the 150 – years old park with avenues of oaks, lime – trees, and hornbeams, and the orchard presenting old types of apple trees offer their guests unique surroundings filled with nature and singing birds. On site, you can sail on the pond, fish and rent bicycles.
You can relax in one of our guest rooms. We can accommodate up to 11 people in 4 double bedrooms and 1 triple bedroom with an suite bathrooms.
The greatest asset of the landed estate is its location in the vicinity of the Podlasie Bug Gorge Landscape Park and the Bug Landscape Park. It is a haven for those who enjoy an active lifestyle (with its bicycle routes, nature paths) and those who want to follow the tracks of C .K. Norwid (Korczew Palace – 5 km away) and S. Żeromski (ruins of the manor house in Łysów – 6 km away).
We offer our visitors, including school groups, an opportunity to visit our expositions, participate in museum lessons, explore an educational nature route or organise campfires.
Young couples are encouraged to use our sites for open air wedding photo shoots, and film and photographic crews – for making advertising, educational, nature and other types of videos.
