On entering you are given a map on the order of rooms you should see. Surprisingly in two rooms you are encouraged to open draws to read love letters, see postcards, additional sheets of music with Puccini's own hand correcting and amending. The house doesn't focus solely on the music but shows he was also passionate with women, friendship, hunting,... More

Small museum and house of Puccini, 7 euro entrance fee, which is a little bit expensive, as there are not so much things to see. I just like the tiny room upstairs.

So it's the apartment I which Puccini spent time; big deal. There's very little of the ambiance that he would have experienced, and mostly photos and statue-heads of the composer. Lots of his awards scattered around, but not what I expected of a 'casa natale'.

Lucca is so beautiful! Only 40 mins max by bus from Crispi 1 (blue bus) , Pisa. €6 return! Wow! I would highly recommend a day at least in Lucca. Puccinis Museum is an absolute must for anyone who likes music/theatre.

It is great to visit Puccini's place and see rooms where lived and created art. Every element was important to us, but I guess we were a bit dissappointed and expected to see more.

If you love Opera, you must come and visit the place where Puccini was born. It's a really interesting place and well worth taking time out to investigate.

The museum on the top floor of a typical Luccean building is well worth a visit. It is extremely well laid out and the guide leaflet gives a clear map of the route to take through the rooms. There are some incredible things to see with many pictures and original letters and scores of the great composer. The garret on... More

Nice small museum. What makes the difference is the tourist guide, he isn't the usual "tape recorded" guide. He should make the leap and make an English spoken tour for foreigners. Bravissima guida!!

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....
