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.

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.
