Really enjoyed this museum. If you enjoy Chopin or only classical music, you will learn so much and get immersed in this musical world. There are very interesting parts about his life, about his inspirations and a dedicated gallery with the different genres he wrote (polonaises, sonatas, waltz...). I warmly recommend, and I would have marked it 5 stars if the museum didn't have so many technical failures that prevented us to access to more complete information...

To be honest it was quite boring. If you are interested in Chopin or classical music (history) then you might enjoy it, but to someone like myself without a particular interest in the topic, it was not engaging at all. There was no clear narrative, just random things to look at. It also doesn’t help that most of the artefacts are actually reproductions and not originals. A significant section of the museum is under renovation, so ticket prices were reduced by 25%.

There is no place to leave valuable belongings and you also cannot take them with you so they just kick you out - that's actually the first time I have experienced it, everything was fine until entering the 1st floor exhibition

Interior design and digital interaction was good. The only thing missing was information as the tour guide through Chopin‘s life. (Sometime I opened Wikipedia to consult) If you are running out of time no worries, you can skip this one.

One of the worst museums I've visited. They tried to use audio and video on monitors spread throughout the museum, but there is no coherent narrative. It's all just one big mess with some interesting exhibits thrown in. Having half of the monitors out of order also didn't help. The non technological items were very obscure. If you already have a good base knowledge of Chopin and are looking for interesting titbits then this is for you, otherwise save your money.

Almost certainly one of the best museums I have ever been to around the world! They presented information dynamically with nice videos about various aspects of Chopin’s life, there were booths to sample some of Chopin’s music, many interesting objects significant to Chopin’s life... I found that the experience was more interesting than the Warsaw Uprising museum, for example, but that could just be due to my interests.

You should visit if you like good museums. It is specialized for music lovers, especially those who like Chopin but in view of the interactive features, good presentation and nice interiors, everyone will liked it

Many of the exhibits were either not on display, not operational, or roped off. The museum provided little narrative on the composer's life, instead offering pictures and annectdotal records without a common theme or chronology. If you are not familiar with his work and biography, I am afraid you won't find the items on display informative.

I wish I could give this museum a higher review, as I was really looking forward to it, but alas the space was poorly curated and over-packed with incomprehensible information. It seems that unless someone had previously read Chopin's biography, the exhibits were almost impossible to navigate. While they were rich with detail, we couldn't find any context for the information. For instance: an elaborate dissection of a letter from Chopin to someone else--the identity of the recipient we will never know! With that said, they had some delightful immersive listening rooms that contained information about specific pieces as the played. A highlight worth the price of admission alone!

Private tour of students with their own guide completely blocked the downstairs exhibit, needlessly. They werent looking at anything, just having a talk. Exhibits were slow to get round, listening points not available, and some items of interest removed from display. Pretentious.

Well curated and very modern. It must not be missed when you come to this city. Come off hours to take your time and comb slowly through his life.

View from Chopin Museum...you can enjoy and learn much more about Chopin here not only by your eyes but also ears. It has very modern and good quality facility for listening Chopin music in the beautiful classic architect.

Nice renovated museum with a lot of multimedia and info about Chopin. Some rooms were closed and I didn’t felt I anything learned as the museum was not guiding you itself with life of Chopin. It’s good you have at least some knowledge about him before you enter. Some headphones were not working.
