The museum, considered today one of the more modern museums in Europe, displays items through technological attractions, and showcases the life, history and works of the composer known for the Polonaise, the Minuets and his beloved waltzes. The museum gives a glimpse into the world of one of the most prominent composers of the Romantic period, and visitors feel like Chopin's guests. Visitors can experience the short but impressive course of his life and hear his works in an experiential way.
The museum has collected many items from Chopin's life, the largest Chopin collection in the world, that began being assembled in 1934, and continues to grow today. Over 5,000 items here are connected to Chopin, such as statues, paintings and photos of him, sheet music, letters, authentic trinkets and souvenirs, hand-written documents by Chopin, personal belongings that he used in his daily life, and even his last piano, from the 1940's.
Among the more sentimental items, there are photos of Chopin in his PJ's, photos of his last moments while laying down on his deathbed, curls from the genius's hair, and dried flowers that had been kept from his sickbed.
The museum hosts many concerts and recitals. Take a look at the schedule on the museum website linked below.
