The Herbst Palace is a place inextricably connected with the histories of the Herbst and Scheibler families counted among the richest and most influential Polish families of the industrial era of the second half of the 19th century. After two years of modernization works the palace will be reopened for public. The interior design and the new arrangement was created based on conservation documentation and on the previously unknown archive photographs. Owing to the new sources of information the interiors are now closer to their original appearance dating back to the times when the Herbst family lived there.

In the 1970s, when the Herbs family house was taken over by Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź with the aim of creating an exhibition of interiors, the lack of equipment and sufficient documentation resulted in designing the palace interiors based on limited amount of information. Current research has led to gaining significantly wider knowledge of the matter.

As a result of the renovation the palace interiors have gained new radiance and come closer to their original appearance. Details have been recreated, the exhibited furniture has been restored, new wallpaper patters have been introduced to resemble the original ones. The exhibition includes lavish representative salons and private rooms of the owners and the new arrangements allows visitors to feel the mood of the eras past.
