Chopin Museum in Warsaw

2010 will signal a number of important cultural events in Poland, one of which is the opening of a new museum in Warsaw, dedicated to the life and works of Frederic Chopin.

The world’s largest collection of Frederic Chopin related items includes musical manuscripts, printed scores, Chopin’s correspondence, personal items (such as cufflinks and diaries), iconography, as well as biographical works about him and critical commentaries on his compositions and his reception as a composer.  The collection was first started in 1899 by the Warsaw Music Society and is located in the renovated Ostrogski Palace, originally a castle founded at the end of the 17th century by Duke Janusz Ostrogski.

    Poland has really been advertising Chopin in the past few years and they should because he was a great musician!

    Would love to go Poland! And not just because of Chopin.
