Museum is located in a small 2 storey house approximately a 300 metre walk from the end of the Ponte Giuseppe Verdi on the other side of the river (although there didn't appear to be any water in it) from the Centro storico. The small house contains a great deal of memorabilia from clothes worn by the Maestro and some... More

My husband and I visited this museum in 2008, and enjoyed it greatly. My father-in--law played violin with Toscanini and had been a friend to the family in New York. The museum showed a video of an interview him, and treated us very kindly. I look forward to visiting again when in Italy.

This was a huge surprise. Tucked away across the bridge over no water...next to a beautiful park...a small birth home. This could be so much more if they allowed them to sell music and make money to expand. You must learn of Benito and Arturo's relationship-- how fascism drove AT out of Italy only to return in triumph in 1946...... More

This is one of the better museums to evoke a musician. In this case it happens to be Arturo Toscanini, considered by many to be the greatest conductor of all time. He knew Verdi and Puccini and all the great composers of his time. He was also a man of principles who stood up to Fascist Italy and later lived... More

Pleasant place to spend an hour or so. I'm not a music history buff by any means, but after many years of playing in wind ensembles, I can understand the significance of this place! Admission fee is extremely reasonable, and a unique collection of photos, articles, and memorabilia await inside. I enjoyed talking with the museum staff as well!

I visited this small museum in a small house by myself. My wife was not interested in seeing this. I was the first person to arrive and enter for 2 euros at 9:30 in the morning. Having the visit to myself while Toscanini conducted music played in the background made it a pleasant experience. The memorabilia is well displayed. They... More

To visit this Great Man's home, see his collection of medals, sheet music, clothing, opera memorabilia was a privilege ... Being able to watch a 30 minute black and white DVD of him conducting the NBC orchestra in New York with many of the greats on hand participating was a joy....

I was lucky enough to visit this museum on the birthday anniversary (March 25) of the maestro. The gentleman who is in charge of the museum gave the visitors an interesting guided tour in Italian and English. The museum is small, but it's full of rich memories. The visit was a memorable experience for me, I recommend it to anyone... More

This unassuming house, where Toscanini was born (but only spent the first year of his life) is full of wonderful memorabilia (in fact there's so much there's not enough room to display it all). Items on display include his grand writing desk and a piano, costumes worn by some of his leading singers, some of his conducting batons and many,... More

This is the home where Toscannini was born. It is beautifully kept, has good displays and friendly, knowledgeable staff. It takes about 45 minutes to go thru.
