Fryderyk Chopin Museum

Fryderyk Chopin is one of the most famous Varsovians and a trip to his museum is a must on any visit to Warsaw. It is located in the historic Ostrogski Palace and is one of the most modern biographical museums in Europe.

The exhibits and multimedia displays tell the story of the life and the work of the composer.
You will learn everything about his childhood and youth spent in Warsaw and his life after he emigrated. You will see letters written to him and by him, drawings and dedications. You will see one of the most popular portraits, artist Teofil Kwiatkowski created during his lifetime, a cast of his hand, and priceless mementos: a gold watch given to the 10-year-old artist in recognition of his talent, a candy box, a keyring with his initials, a cufflink, and a priceless Pleyel piano on which the composer played for the last two years of his life.

Delve into the creative process of the artist by looking at his musical sketches, notes, and manuscripts of finished works. And all this in an interesting, interactive form.

The ticket allows you to listen to the music of Chopin live at weekends.

In front of the palace is a fountain with the Golden Duck – the heroine of one of the Warsaw legends.
