  • Polish home with a sympathy capital close to nothingness (except the person in the dressing room) Museum interesting from the architectural point of view of the building, but for the rest, one must love Chopin and the piano in general. Interactive, but not interesting all in English and Polish

  • Lacks coherent and clear narrative from any (musical/biographical/historical) perspective. Almost all information is buried under convoluted and slow interactive gadgety screens for which you have to ...  more »

  • I wasn't fully aware of Chopin's life and career so this museum was perfect to get to know more about his life and what inspired his work. It is super interactive so you have a lot of music, videos, stories, touch screens, for sure you won't get bored there. The souvenir shop isn't expensive so you can also buy there exclusive souvenirs they have for you.
  • The museum was a very immersive experience and allowed you very much to go at your own pace and view it for yourself. However, some of the letters and other written items were not translated from Polish, and there was a lot of names mentioned but not much context given to the names. The interactive parts were good and in-depth, and the building itself stunning.
