- Żelazowa Wola is a very special place, marked with great emotions – said Andrzej Sułek, director of the Chopin Institute during the ceremonial opening.

Both the Manor and the restored Park can be seen individually with a multimedia guide and headphones. We want to guide the visitors with the help of an audio commentary, which goal is to create a kind of non-existing world. – said Alicja Knast, curator of the Chopin Museum in Warsaw.

Renovated Manor, refreshed exposition, restored Park and modern pavilions for tourists – the Chopin birthplace has begun a new life.

Thanks to all the work that was done in Żelazowa Wola, the Chopin birthplace changed into a European cultural institution. At first the Manor was renovated in details – the walls were dried, foundations reinforced, installations removed and changed. Next stage of the works was the restoration of the Park and building of the new objects from wood, glass and field stones. Two most important pavilions were located near the main gate – one will host the reception, the box-office, the store and café, the second: the concert hall and the restaurant. The open air stage was also built on the River Utrata.
