The building was very nice and it has 4 floors to explore with one ticket. We expected a more interactive museum with more interesting information about chopin’s life. Also some of the audio systems were out of order. The discounted ticket was 13zl.

I’ve loved Chopin’s music for decades; I’ve read a lot of his biographies. I’ve always felt I identified with him. But this museum was such a disappointment - no clear path to take; dark tunnels, and unnerving slopes and steps. Too many inter active displays...More

Have visited a few museums in honour of great composers. This was one of the best for its interactive displays. Recommend spending anywhere from 1 to 3 hours here depending on your level of interest. Free on Sundays.

I arrived 1.5 hours before closing time and just managed to finish seeing everything on display. However, for classical music lovers or connoisseurs it's easy to spend much longer here. Many interactive multimedia showing you different aspects of the musician's life. On the -1 floor...More

I had mixed reviews. This museum is very modern. Some wonderful exhibits and digital components. One room has a number of 'desks' with headphones and seats two. Each one featured one type of musical piece -- etudes, polonaise, etc. The digital board gave information about...More

Yes. In Chopin Museum we have Chopin's last piano made by Pleyel. Chopin played on that instrument during tournee to Scottland and UK.
