The house is not big and I spent easily about an hour or so. The admission ticket is 7 Euros and you need to buy it in the ticket office which is next to Puccini’s statue (on your... read more

Being able to view his scores and librettos and letters was so thrilling and fabulous. Hearing his music in the background made it absolutely perfect! The man was clearly a genius!

The house is not big and I spent easily about an hour or so. The admission ticket is 7 Euros and you need to buy it in the ticket office which is next to Puccini’s statue (on your left if you stand in front of his face). It was a bit confusing that you need to buy the ticket here.... More

Some lucky visitors take in a Puccini performance while in Lucca, but most of us need to content ourselves with a visit to the Puccini Museum - casa natale instead. Outside a bronze seated statue of the Maestro himself greets you. Inside you'll find musical scores, furnishings, decor, art, memorabilia and the Steinway piano - & more. ...

As an opera lover in Lucca, a visit to Puccini's birthplace was always on the agenda, but this museum will be of interest to more than the committed Puccini fans. Once you've worked out that tickets are purchased in the other side of the piazza, the museum itself is well presented, with a good mix of biography, musical scores, correspondence,... More

My wife and recently visited the Puccini Casa Natale while in Lucca. Very enjoyable! We are "moderate" opera fans (Santa Fe, St Paul) and found this exhibit to be very informative. We particularly enjoyed the manuscripts, letters and costumes on display. Enjoy!

Loved Puccini's Casa Natale museum. Being a musician myself, I was particularly interested in seeing some of his original manuscripts and the place where he composed until age 22. The young man who greeted us was an art history major and full of amazing facts about Puccini. We had been there in 2004 but since then there was an extensive... More

They have made an interesting museum of the house in which Puccini was born and raised. It is just off the Piazza Cittadella and well worth a visit. Go up to the attic (which must be accompanied by a member of staff) where they had a set from an early production of La Boheme. The costumer on show from the... More

Great fun to see costumes and letters in Puccini birthplace. Tickets across square. Strange layout to the house. Don't miss the film of Puccini on a duck shoot -- it's on in a rather inaccessible corner

Lovely little museum tucked away in a small piazza but well worth a visit. Knew very little about Puccini before this visit but know far more now
