Interesting visit to museum dedicated to Vincenzo Bellini, the opera composer. Shown around by staff. Has the usual opera posters, original manuscripts, letters, &c. The weird one was his displayed coffin, which was dug up years after his death so he could be placed in a more prominent tomb. The museum is almost hidden inside an apartment building.

A small, unassuming place with only shadows of the great Bellinian past.

This was a very small museum with some exhibits about Bellini, his life and his music. It has a few artifacts, posters and scores spread out through a few rooms. It is a nice diversion but won't take up more than 45 minutes of your time.

My wife has a keen interest in Bellini from her degree in music. Obviously we had to go to the museum. It's a small but intimate museum with very knowedgable staff who are ever keen to help!
