Wonderful selection of original scores. Felt rather stark inside. A few rooms containing furniture showing how thing were set out.

It's not a huge museum - but it is well worth a visit - especially if you love Puccini. Enjoy a lunch at one of the small cafe/restaurants dotting the small piazza outside the museum. A charming experience all around.

A welcome rest from the sights of Lucca, quiet and beautiful. Half an hour of Italian history and finesse in beautiful surroundings.

Okay, if you want to learn more about Pucini; be aware you need to climb stairs to get to it. Worth it for a half hour's diversion.

Very intriguing collection includes letters from Wagner and Toscanini, the Steinway used for composing Turandot, scores, photos, portraits and splendid cape and headdress from Turandot which takes up an entire room. First buy tickets some doors away, in the square, at gift shop, then you buzz to enter and are directed to climb stairs to 2nd piano. 30 mins max... More

Puccini lived here for the first years of his life and then moved on to glory elsewhere. However the museum is full of his manuscript and the piano on which composed Madama Butterfly. Puccini does not seem very popular in Lucca- the audience at the nightly operatic recitals is overwhelmingly foreign. These recitals are held in the church of San... More

If you like Puccini you will love the history here. Don't miss it! No lines and very informative. Concerts are put on frequently as well.

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.
