  • To speak of Frederic Chopin, is to make it one of the greatest composers of the history of mankind. Polish of birth, is the musical pride of Warsaw. It occupies the interior of the Ostrogski Palace, built in Baroque style in the 17TH century. On the occasion of the 200 anniversary of his birth in the year 2010 opened it was reformed and reinaugurated. It has several plants where you can enjoy and learn from your life and work through manuscripts, documents, letters, photographs, furniture, audio and interactive activities. If you admire the figure of this great composer it is a unique occasion to delve into his life.

  • This wasn't our first time visiting and as always - we loved it. It's interactive and modern but also perfectly brings one back to the era of Chopin... The lighting and music is wonderful - great place for a romantic date! My 6-year-old had a great time and he loved it there when he was just 3 years old too. A must-see when in Warsaw!
  • The museum is absolutely stunning. Very interactive - you can listen to Chopin's music and at the same time find out interesting things about the art of composing and the artist's life. It is quite modern as well so young people shouldn't find it boring. And the old building has undoubtedly some charm.
  • You never want to miss this place. The Warsaw's main international airport has been named by Chopin's name. You need to allow a few hours if you're a true music lover and listen to some of Chopin's brilliant work. Don't forget to treat yourself with some Chopin's work from the store across the museum. A must see place if you're visiting Warsaw.
  • They were under renovation when I visited so I can't attest to too much, but I expected more musical performance pieces, instead you had three listening booths for everyone. Maybe consider adding music as an element to the museum experience? The house is beautiful though. Chopin maybe (probably not) visited it.
  • This museum has the best use of multimedia I have seen. It's not overwhelming, but adds to the experience. I'm not really musical, but thoroughly enjoyed this museum.
