The displays were attractively presented and gave an interesting overview of Chopin’s life and compositions, as well as provided the historical context of his lifetime. Unfortunately many of the interactive displays were out of order, but I still rate this museum highly given the comprehensive exhibitions. It seemed like the museum could be difficult to visit for someone with mobility... More

I visited this museum during my stay. I lived 2 minutes walking distance from the museum. It was a very hot day outside so it was the perfect time to visit. You get to know more about Chopin's life and there is a lot of stuff to go through. It is on multiple levels and well-equipped. You can listen to... More

interesting insight into the life and times of Chopin. includes some of his early instruments, read and hear particular scores of his music. Throughout the visit there is the murmor of his music reverberating throughout the building from a pianist located in the basement

The building and its contents are amazing, with clever interactive displays, just a shame so many were out of order.

You can listen to his music in booths, see his piano, letters, original sheet music etc. Loved it and could have spent hours and hours there. Souvenir shop was also great.

This museum requires swipe card access to interact with exhibits. I found it a bit complicated. What I enjoyed most was being able to listen to some Chopin and learn about what I was listening to.

This musuem in the heart of Warsaw, and close to other local attractions. As they say, Chopin's body may have been burried in Paris, but his heart is Warsaw. This musuem was put together so well, and contains great details about the artist's life. So if you are a lover of Chopin, you don't want to miss this! Be aware... More

This museum and attraction is a nice interactive museum to Fryderyk Chopin. In this most vibrant of cities you will find so many references to Chopin such as statues and the like and the 14 musical benches that play snippets of the great man's music are superb. The museum is 10 Zlotys to enter and is well worth the admittance... More

We spent an interesting couple of hours here on a rainy day. Plenty occasions to listen to Chopin's music. Lots of interactive displays, but unfortunately they didn't all work. This meant some of the artefacts had very little relevance. No clear timeline to follow which meant you ended up jumping back and forward through the events of Chopin's life.

Thank Fiona B
