Fryderyk Chopin Museum, Warsaw

Fryderyk Chopin Museum, Warsaw (must see)

Chopin was a born and raised Warsawian who is perhaps the most well-known Pole internationally. His work has been performed thousands and thousands of times in different music halls and parlors around the world.

If you love music, your trip to Warsaw is certainly incomplete without a visit to this museum that showcases melodies in their very essence. History and works of the genius composer Chopin are displayed here in the form of documents and original manuscripts written by him, as well as sculptures, photographs and letters, piano competitions, or recitals of his works.

Refurbished for the 200th anniversary (2010) of Frédéric Chopin's birth, this multimedia museum is one of the most modern museums in Poland. Its collections are displayed on five levels of exhibition space in 15 rooms. As you enter the museum you will be struck by the majestic Pompeian style frescoes, stucco, and the rich ceilings. Some museums can be too bright, but this one sets a nice, tranquil mood.

Why You Should Visit:
Even if you're not interested in Chopin's life, this is definitely worth checking out for all the interactive exhibits and, of course, the listening room in the basement. The building itself is gorgeous, making a lovely setting, but not one that is too distracting.

Opening Hours:
Tue-Sun: 11am-8pm
Apr 20, Dec 31: 11am-3pm
Free admission: Wednesdays
