Begins with the great statue of Puccini and continues inside his home. If you aren't an opera lover, you might be interested but we loved looking at the furnishings and the letters. Worth it to hear the music alone!

Not a huge museum but enough to spend just over an hour looking at all the furnitures, old letters and photographs on display, going back in time, imagining Puccini's adventurous life back then. Enjoyed the visit with his music playing in the background. Spoke to a friendly member of staff who was able to explain some points in more details.... More

The home is small and contains some manuscripts and objects that belonged to Puccini. It was an expensive place to visit - one floor with very little in it. Unless you are a real fan and lover of Puccini it is not worth the visit.

This is a small museum that we think would be mainly of interest to opera lovers. Family photos, opera memorabilia, and family letters of Puccini.

Wonderful selection of original scores. Felt rather stark inside. A few rooms containing furniture showing how thing were set out.

It's not a huge museum - but it is well worth a visit - especially if you love Puccini. Enjoy a lunch at one of the small cafe/restaurants dotting the small piazza outside the museum. A charming experience all around.

A welcome rest from the sights of Lucca, quiet and beautiful. Half an hour of Italian history and finesse in beautiful surroundings.

Okay, if you want to learn more about Pucini; be aware you need to climb stairs to get to it. Worth it for a half hour's diversion.

Very intriguing collection includes letters from Wagner and Toscanini, the Steinway used for composing Turandot, scores, photos, portraits and splendid cape and headdress from Turandot which takes up an entire room. First buy tickets some doors away, in the square, at gift shop, then you buzz to enter and are directed to climb stairs to 2nd piano. 30 mins max... More
