Wow!  It's beautiful.

Have you been there?

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Yes, I have. Although all the installations weren't finished yet, I was impressed. Some complain that it's too modern, but I like it. Most of the icons come from Russia/Belarus/Ukraine and were confiscated on the boarder line. There are also some frescoes from the original XVIth century Monastery Church.

Do they play Liturgical music or is it silent?

Yes, there is some music (for example from the Irmologion of Supraśl), lights are also changing their power. It looks really mysteriously inside.

Ordinarily, I don't like icon museums: they should be in Church.  There are exceptions.  This is one (another was the exibit that the Art Institute put on a decade ago.  They had bishop icongraphers come in to speak and have workshops).  But I like the first hall, with the reproduction on the walls of the icons in the catocombs (so much for the "blank walls" Protestants claim for the Early Church), giving a sense of the roots of iconography.  The other room, with the pictures of people at worship etc. is very effective at conveying what the icons are for. So too the icon corner one.

Dziekuja!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
