The gallery was started by Edward Aleksander Raczyński. Rogalin is also known for its putatively 1000-year-old oak trees (Polish: Dęby Rogalińskie) on the banks of the Warta.

The last owner of the estate was Count Edward Bernard Raczyński, who in 19791986 was President of the Polish Republic in exile. His coffin is deposited in the Raczyński Mausoleum, under the historical chapel in Rogalin. In his testament, Count Raczyński bequeathed his family palace in Rogalin and his library to the Polish people.
