The Fryderyk Chopin Museum

Fryderyk Chopin Museum (Polish: Muzeum Fryderyka Chopina) is the most modern biographical museum in Europe. It features the world’s most varied collection of memorabilia related to Poland’s most famous composer. The collection includes manuscripts and printed copies of Chopin’s works, his correspondence, autographs, notes, and works of art; and personal items such as his piano, school exercise books, or a sweet box.

Visitors can choose exactly what they want to see at the museum, and how much they want to learn about various subjects. The museum is filled with interactive e-books, audio-visuals, music games and touchscreen options and each guest individually designs his own experience by swiping micro-chipped tickets (programmed into 8 languages) along different interactive exhibits.

The entire exhibition consists of 15 rooms where visitors can get a snapshot of the time when Chopin lived: they can take a stroll through Warsaw, then enjoy Paris, inhale the scent of violets (Chopin’s favorite flowers), or listen to his music.

The museum has also a children’s room with some interactive games and behind the building there is a public playground.

Museum has free admission on Sundays.

    Reviewed 29 April 2018

    The Chopin Museum was an interesting tour into the troubled life of Frederic Chopin.  Although much of the material probably is geared more towards adults, the number of interactive stations gives younger visitors an opportunity to play and explore.  There were a few drawbacks, however.  I kind of expected music to be a constant theme in the museum, but I was surprised not to hear much music around the exhibit.  Many of the exhibit areas were eerily quiet.  Granted, you could turn on music at some stations, and one room did have regular music playing, but in at least half there was no music playing.  Some of the interactive features were down while I was there, maybe 10-15% of them.  The functionality of my visitor card also came and went.  If they can work the bugs out of the system, I think it is a good museum and worth a visit, especially on Sunday, when it is free.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Tips

    Be prepared to get tickets in advance though if you go on Sunday because I had to wait an hour to enter because access is limited by the building's capacity. There are elevators, so there should be access for strollers, etc.
