   One part of the castle is sold to Seweryn Boner in 1530 while the rest to Skotnicki family in 1601. The Skotnickis make some restorations in the roof construction and the water pipe system which causes a long term conflict between the two families, comically described by a famous Polish comedy Aleksander Fredro (the later owner of Kamieniec). Throughout ages, the castle belonged to several families and it was visited by such noble kings as Kazimierz  the Great, Władysław Jagiełło, Jan Kazimierz, the reign of Hungary - Zapolya. Personages such as Mikołaj Kamieniecki, Stanisław Szeptycki (general), Aleksander Fredro, Wincenty Pol (poet), blessed Stanisław Starowieyski were related to the castle. Renown Hungarian poet Balint Balassy spent several months in XVI c there.
   In 1995, the castle museum is funded and located  in two restored chambers. Since 1998 the castle belongs to the state and is managed by the Kolder family who significantly developed the museum, enrich its exhibits and restore the ruins.
