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.

Much like Mozart's museum in Salzburg, this was Puccini's house. I'm not an avid fan of this type of music but the insight into one man's life in that era was very interesting. We went just as it opened around 10.00 am and we were the only people there for a time which gave us time to read all the... More

Puccini's house was not open last time we stayed in Lucca so we were delighted to be able to visit this time. It was much more interesting than I expected - the letters in particular. The two curators were very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I went to the Puccini museum because I was going to see a Puccini opera in Rome and thought it would be interesting. It is, whether or not you know much about Puccini ( I didn't). As well as the childhood artifacts you can see a lot about the man and his life. Worth a visit to the garret.

Although I don't specially like houses of writers or composers, because there is always this atmosphere of lack of life, this museum has some interesting photographs and Puccini's drafts. This way, you can have an idea how he worked and composed is operas.

The Puccini house was wonderful, with a room plan provided and explained by knowledgeable staff who spoke several languages. The artefacts that were on display in the various rooms were fascinating and really captured the era of Puccini's life. Although not all items on display are originally from the Puccini home, the museum has done a first class job of... More

The decoration of the house was very interesting and the costume from one of Puccini's operas on display was stunning. The staff there were friendly and helpful, giving a mini guided tour of a room not normally possible to see.

It was lovely to visit this small home and birthplace of Puccini. Looking at the original manuscript, one wonders how anyone can read his handwriting. If would be nice to have more information about his life.

Small and compact but full of interesting displays about Puccini and his life. Well worth a visit - but your ticket over the road first!

This is a lovely small museum obviously dedicated to Puccini and his time around Lucca. It is situated in an apartment on the second floor so there are a few stairs but not too many. This is the actual place where Puccini was born. There are original manuscripts, letters, postcards, musical scores, photos, costumes and the piano on which Puccini... More
