The museum is very nice and modern, it is very well equipped. There are some authentic things owned by Chopin - his grand piano is one of the most impressive. There is a lot of information on interactive displays with earphones - you can listen various stories in Polish and read subtitles in English. It would be great to have audioguides instead and also mark directions you have to follow, like it is usually done in museums - here we were a little bit lost where to start and continue.

Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic period. He is one of the most famous Varsovians.

The museum has been housed in the Ostrogski Palace since 1953. It is a beautiful baroque palace from the 17th century.

The museum has the world’s largest collection of Chopiniana, more than 7500 items linked to the composer’s life and work.

On Wednesdays, the entrance is free. Otherwise, the normal ticket costs 23 PLN (= 5 €).

The museum is filled with music and information. It felt like a morning spent back in time. If you are a Chopin lover, this is a wonderful steeping in his life and work. But I think the music and well set up exhibits will please you even if you are a Chopin novice.

Nothing to see. Only many pictures, some letters, music backround of courrse, blah blah blah... Clean and esthetic, must admit. But anyway, I regret spending 5 euros for ticket. A lot of better places in Warsaw.

Was this museum organized by European Union employees? Had hard time following the exhibits and interactive audio visual key didn't seem to interact a lot. Most interesting part about Georges Sand.
They could have had a film about Chopin's life.
Wondering where most of his personal things ended up...

I am a classical music lover and I had huge expectations for the Chopin Museum. That expectation was largely crushed within minutes of entry. There is absolutely no order to this museum. Usually a museum which showcases a person is ordered chronological from birth to death. In many museums, the direction in which visitors should proceed are clearly marked. In this museum, we first observe an exhibit which explains something about Chopin's birth, and after that it is like a maze with mass confusion and no sense of direction. Lots of musical scores, old photographs, letters, etc. but little information provided. For example, I am aware that Chopin was born in Poland, but spent most of his life in France. But I have no idea where or if this information was explained. Does the museum assume that we already know that? Overall, I learned NOTHING from this museum. Huge disappointment. I have visited Mozart's house in Prague and Mozart's apartment in Vienna, which were both wonderful and memorable. The Chopin museum can be skipped entirely. I don't think I will remember anything from this museum.

Don't understand the reviews recommending this as a must visit for classic music lovers. I am a big fan of both Chopin as a composer and classic music in general but there is absolutely nothing about this museum that appealed to me apart from the architecture of the building, which you may just as well admire from the outside.

This museum is absolutely nothing but a collection of miscellaneous facts and pictures presented to visitors without any context whatsoever and unless you devoted a good part of your life to a detailed study of Chopin's life and biography. none of those pictures, names and dates will mean anything to you and will not be able to piece them together to find any connection to either the museum itself or, indeed, Chopin as a person and as a composer.

To top it all, many things in this so called museum are copies of documents that you may as well view on the Internet and music recorded on video and DVD, which you can just as well watch at home.

Most of the museum digital guides aren't functioning properly after you tap the plastic card they give you at the entrance, so you can't even listen to half of those pre-recorded stories you find in many museums these days.

This museum is nothing but a shameless money making opportunity and if you are really obsessed with Chopin, come on Sundays. At least then you can visit this excuse for a museum for free.

I visited the Chopin museum in March 2016 but didn't enjoy it. Housed in a beautiful building, the museum presents information in a variety of interact displays but at least half of them were not working on the day I was there. There are a lot of displays of letters and documents but often without an explanation of who the main people are so no context was given.

Best bit for me is on the top floor it tells you about his travels across Europe. Needless to say I laughed out loud when I heard what he had to say about England and Scotland.

I had high expectations for this museum after recently visiting Beethoven haus in Bonn, Mendelssohn and Schumann haus in Leipzig and the Lobkowicz collection in Prague, which were all of a high standard.

What a huge disappointment. Whoever designed this "interactive" museum needs to be shot. It DOES NOT WORK.

Firstly, there are NO audio guides, and many of the digital LCD display guides are only offered in Polish.

The autographed music score on display is accompanied by an entirely different piece of music, which is played on horrible sounding speakers from the ceiling which actually rattle during the louder sections.

The deceptions don't line up with the prints, which are ALL photocopies (not just some like most museums, but EVERYTHING is fake!).

One of the two large projections with interviews with Chopin academics wasn't working, and many (>20%) of the fake photocopied display pieces were missing "due to conservation".

There are a large number of Sennheiser headphones to accompany the displays, but there are all in polish!

Don't waste your time here.
