  • 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 ...  more »
  • Interactive museum that inspires and uninspired, with most of the exhibit aren't working. The quiet part consists of photocopies, not original writings. I was greatly disappointed.

  • While I greatly enjoyed the visit, seeing as I found it unexpectedly by walking past it, there are aspects to the museum that heavily detract from the experience. The museum is a detailed examination of Chopin's life, but it is managed like a funeral home, or like a church service when the coffin is in front of the altar. Instead of celebrating his life and music, it is like being at his funeral, which is an incredibly poor way to represent the richness of his life. All the visitors were quiet like church mice. It takes time to go through all of the written notes, some more video describing his life would have been easier to digest. There's a LOT of reading. Still, it's a great place to visit to learn more about such an iconic composer.
  • Ok museum, not great. Many of the displays / technology was out of order. It is recommended to read a lot about Chopin before visiting to get the most out of your visit.
  • I really liked the concept of the Chopin Museum- trying to combine insightful information about the life of Fryderyk Chopin in a digital-multimedia experience. It does create a unique way of exploring the museum - when the information panels work. However during our visit many of the panels were unresponsive, which limited the information we could get in English. Hope that these issues are sorted out in future.
  • Love music. Like concept and architecture of Chopin museum. Yes, some exhibition devices are not working. Need to fix it.
  • I wanted to like this museum but it just couldn't meet expectations. It's tried to be too technologically advanced and many of the exhibits are not working. I wish there were more simple things there like a hard copy of music transcript I could flip/read through whilst listening to his music. Some more paragraphs and chunks of text would have helped me build his story as a narrative rather than seeing clippings here and there.
