Middle wing of the Royal Palace in Wrocław, originally a palace of the Prussian monarchy, the palace now houses the city museum. Initially a Baroque palace of Heinrich Gottfried von Spätgen, it was built in 1717 in a Viennese style. In 1750, after Prussia took control over Silesia in the First Silesian War, the palace was purchased by the Prussian king Frederick the Great and was converted into his residence.
In May 1945 the palace was heavily damaged during the siege of the city at the end of the Second World War. The remaining wings were adapted to host the Archeological Museum (until 1999) and the Ethnographic Museum (until 2004). In 2008 a renovation was finished and a new museum was established, presenting 1,000 year history of Wrocław.
