The building was located near the Warszaw Vienna Rail and surrounded with neo-Romantic park. It was altered several times, yet the biggest changes of construction were carried out after the Second World War when used to house a kindergarten and private flats. In 1980 the Schon Palace was registered as one of the monuments of the Katowice province. It was also then that its conversion into a museum started.
