This branch of the Fryderyk Chopin Museum is situated in the apartment in the Krasiński Palace, where the Chopin Family lived during the years 1827-1836/7. After Chopin had left Poland Antoni Kolberg made the sketch of the drawing-room as a memento of Chopin's family home - he pictured the Chopin household placed - doubtless deliberately - beside the piano. In the ‘upstairs room', Chopin found the peace that he needed to devote himself to his music studies and composition. And in this drawing-room the first public performances of his early works took place.
The Chopin Family Drawing-Room will be closed from 24th July 2014.
