When visiting the center of Dukla, it is worth visiting the Historical Museum - Palace, located in the palace and park complex of the Mniszech family from the second half of the 18th century.

It was erected based on an older layout by Jerzy and Amalia as a late-baroque aristocratic residence in the French style, in the "entre cour et jardin" type (the main building lies on the axis between the honorary courtyard and the garden at the back of the palace). Despite the war damages and reconstructions, the complex remains one of the most compelling examples of such a layout. However, the French garden was replaced with an English-style landscape park, which is somewhat thinned today. The park has a neo-Gothic chapel of the Męciński family who ruled Dukla in the 19th century.

The origins of the museum date back to 1964. Then an exhibition devoted to the Carpathian-Dukla, the biggest mountain battle of World War II, was organized in the former Mniszech Palace. Over time, the collection was enlarged and included in the official museum system, becoming a separate institution in 1972 - the Museum of the Brotherhood of Arms in Dukla. In 1991, the Historical Museum - Palace in Dukla, gained a regional profile apart from the war.

Currently, it is worth seeing both the exhibitions on the history of Dukla and the palace itself and military arrangements, mostly related to the fights in the Carpathians during World War I and II.

For years, tourists have also been attracted by the open-air museum of heavy weapons in the palace's courtyard. Interesting temporary exhibitions are also organized.
