With a history dating back to the 1930's, the Chopin Museum pays homage to the incredible life and death of one of Poland's most famous sons. Reopened in 2010, the newly modernized museum boasts interactive displays and even more long sought after articles of Chopin's life and compositions, including a death mask and the last piano he ever composed on. To call it a testament to Poland's reemerging status as a European cultural hot spot is no exaggeration, but then again, maybe we're just a sucker for ethereal nocturnes. Regardless, whether you're a Chopin aficionado or not, both the structure and its contents are well worth a look.
Location:1 Okólnik Street, 00-368 Warsaw
