There are signs all over the city that point the way to this museum which was the home in which Puccini was born. It is a lovely little building, and Puccini is the native son, pride and joy of Lucca! The exhibit is nice, but mostly in Italian - there is a small brochure that helped me navigate through it....

We visited here in October 2013. We found this museum hard to locate - down a small street opening into a little piazza. You might need to ask directions if you can't locate it. Tickets had to be purchased in one building and we were sent to this house nearby. We found it to be very interesting setting out his... More

I preferred his house near Torre de lago which I found more interesting. However, opera lovers will enjoy this small museum.

A pity that you are not allowed to take pictures inside the museum. I refuse to buy a souvenir when I am not allowed to take photos. That's why I did not buy the little bronze statue of Puccini. The museum itself is worth visiting (there is no elevator, so you have to walk to the 2nd floor). It was... More

Italy is crammed with monuments to the birth place or final resting place of so many illustrious writers, composers, artists and Puccini is just one of them. Well worth a visit. Tip; if you have time visit Torre del Largo, where Puccini lived and is buried

For a non-opera buff the concert was lovely. Several well known arias and the acoustics were fabulous. I also appreciated that concert wasn't too long.

i like seeing homes of this era. He was born there in 1858. Most of the furniture is original but an Empire Bed is a reproduction of the original. There are a few letters some music and costumes. It does not take a lot of time,. The displays are captioned in English as was as Italian. There are 12 rooms... More

If you love Puccini's music then visiting his birthplace is a must. Do not miss the little "La Boheme" room in the attic. Visiting Puccini's birthplace and also his home in Torre del Lago is a wonderful experience. We were shown round by Simonetta, his grand daughter, in Torre del Lago, a wonderful lady!

This museum is houses in the rooms Puccini was born in and displays a number of interesting items including letters, musical scores, and personal effects. Allow from 30 to 60 minutes.

This is an interesting way to see the life of Puccini and if you can't get to an opera it serves as the next best thing.
