  • I wasn't fully aware of Chopin's life and career so this museum was perfect to get to know more about his life and what inspired his work. It is super interactive so you have a lot of music, videos, stories, touch screens, for sure you won't get bored there. The souvenir shop isn't expensive so you can also buy there exclusive souvenirs they have for you.
  • The museum was a very immersive experience and allowed you very much to go at your own pace and view it for yourself. However, some of the letters and other written items were not translated from Polish, and there was a lot of names mentioned but not much context given to the names. The interactive parts were good and in-depth, and the building itself stunning.
  • Really good for people who Chopin and would love to know more about his history. And for those who have a passing and would enjoy knowing a little about mans life and death. Very good.
  • The museum is only interesting for those, who are truly into Chopin's life history - not much to see, plenty to read and listen. At the entrance you get a plastic card, which activates interactive spots at the exposition. I was hoping to see more of his personal belongings, furniture, recreated living spaces, etc., not that only one living room fragment. However, just found a lot of sketches and notes. The music, of which you can listen to in many spots, is beautiful though.
  • A lot of various interesting details displayed in grate way. There is an option to listen to additional information about a lot of exhibits (with no extra fee) but some were not working or I could not find an English version. Has room with good aquistocs to listen to the music.
