Great little museum in Toscanini's birthplace where we were able to learn more about his personal history as well as how his life interacted with the history of his times. It was a special treat that the docent gave us a guided tour and had an incredible amount of information and interesting anecdotes to share. Definitely recommend it, not just for music lovers but for anyone interested in history, and also as a change of pace from the more traditional tourist sites. Also - admission is free!

We only gave this 4 stars because the 5 star attraction in Parma is Theatre Reggio.
But do go here; it takes about 1.5 hour to see the museum and watch the outstanding video (1hour) about Toscanini's life. What an eye-opening experience to learn about this outstanding conductor's life, and his principles about his country that kept him from performing Nazi music, at personal cost to him. There wasn't a formal tour but the woman in charge took us around and gave us so much information that it was like a personal tour.

Very well done and away from tourist destinations - I recommend to start with the movie in the upper floor (in Italian) which provides an excellent impression about the life of this world class conductor.

The place isn't where he lived, that was in a posh area in Milano where La Scala and the big money are. That said you can really get an idea of Toscanini origins: not upperclass, There are a lot of memorabilia there some very interesting like letters to Toscanini from Verdi and the poet D'Annunzio. Is it worth as a destination? Not really but the location is convenient as it is very close to the Parco Ducale and if you are going there or leaving it then a stop by on a hot day it is really worth it.

Why not make a small detour before/after your visit to the Parco Ducale? Unless, of course, you want to make it a destination. I found it well worth it. Pictures and mementos of the Maestro in all his glory. Small museum, not overwhelming with friendly young staffers.

Arturo Toscanini stands as one of the greatest, perhaps THE greatest conductor of all times. He knew Verdi and Puccini and conducted their works. He created the NBC Symphony, conducted at the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic and at the Bayreuth Festival in Germany until he opposed Nazism. The museum in the house where he was born is a superb collection of instruments, mementoes and documents that will prove enlightening.

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.

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 also have a video to watch of Toscanini conducting in black and white. I spent an hour here and feel like I learned a lot about his life. So, glad I went and visited!

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 with an interest into classical music.

This museum, in the birthplace of the famous conductor, nicely documents his life and rise to fame. A guide accompanied me and explained many details. They had a video of Toscanini conducting the NBC orchestra, with the music filling the space to provide a perfect background. Avoiding excessive glorification, the commentary mentioned that the praise heaped upon him grew to be fairly extreme.

A short but worthwhile activity for classical music lovers and those interested in the transplantation of Italian culture to the US.
