Liw Castle Armoury Museum is one of the oldest examples of gothic architecture in the east part of Mazovia districkt. In the XV century duke of Mazovia Janusz the Old founded a gothic castle on an artificial island in the middle of the Liwiec river witch was a country border between the Grand Duchy of Lithania and the Kingdom of Poland. In the XVII century the castle have been destroyed by the swedish army. During second world war the nazis wanted to tear down the ruins and reuse materials in building the Treblinka contrentation camp. Then a young polish archeologist Otto Warpechowski persuaded a german officer that the castle had been built by the Teutonic Order, and thus saved the ruins from destruction. The museum exists since 1963 in a reconstructed baroq manor.
