Local name: Pałac Poznańskich - Muzeum Miasta Łodzi

The Museum of the City of Łódź is located in the eye-catching building of the former Izrael Poznański's Palace. It is a neo-Baroque building with a facade decorated with allegorical sculptures that glorify the industry. In the Museum are few permanent exhibitions. The appearance of Izrael Poznański's office from the end of the 19th century, the palace dining room, and mirror room were recreated there. Besides the rooms, visitors can see the Pantheon of Great People of Łódź and the gallery of Polish painting and sculpture.

Izrael Poznański bought a neo-Renaissance palace in 1877. At the beginning of the 20th century, it underwent thorough reconstruction and has gained neo-Baroque features. The interiors were decorated with a sumptuousness suitable for the most important factory owner family in Łódź. Decorating styles and elements of Art Nouveau are mixed in the decor. A complex of garden and residential buildings was created around the palace.

Nowadays, the Palace of Izrael Poznański is the headquarters of the Museum of the City of Łódź. It shows the interiors of a factory owner's residence. In the rooms, there are also exhibitions dedicated to famous residents of Łódź, including Jan Karski, Marek Edelman, Julian Tuwim, Władysław Reymont, Jerzy Kosiński, and Karl Dedecius.
