The museum located in the Ostrogski Palace is one of the most interesting places of this type in Poland. Apart from a rich exhibition consisting of numerous letters, music notes, graphics and paintings depicting Fryderyk Chopin, you can admire here a wide range of private items and souvenirs that belonged to the composer.
You will find here his last piano, a diary, a notebook from high-school and a curl of George Sand’s hair. The permanent exhibition is an impressive result of a contest-winning project which benefits from the idea of an open museum. Visitors can choose theme paths themselves, walk the four-storey building to watch and listen the inspiring exhibits. This modern interactive, multimedia concept allows anyone to experience live and memories of Fryderyk Chopin in a unique and fascinating way.
Guide tours are another asset. Guides will adjust a program according to your age, preferences and knowledge. The offer of the museum is enriched by meeting, concerts, artistic events and a wide range of educational suggestions aimed at all age groups.
The museum has two branches – the Chopin family drawing-room in Krasińscy Palace and composer’s manor in Żelazowa Wola.
