Knew his name, Grandmother was a maid at one of his villas and her father farmed on one of his estates. The history, the musical scores, sets, and the costumes make this a very interesting and informative experience.

Set up in the house in which Puccini was born. Very well set out. Most interesting. Lots of original letters and manuscripts. Also the Steinway piano on which Puccini composed some of his work.

When you go around the old town and suddenly get back to - not the present time but more close 19 century -you try to realize where you are and who was Puccini. but when you do and tune to the Toska atmosphere - you will like it

A lovely little museum. Exhibition is well designed and displayed - with a huge volume of original documents from Puccini himself. Of particular note are the costumes from Butterfly, Manon Lescaut and the truly impressive Act II Turandot gown. Staff were very friendly and super knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Puccini's house is set back from the centre of Lucca overlooking a quiet and picturesque square with his statue in the centre. Lucca is worth visiting for a variety of sites including its ancient fortication, Napoleon's square, the Forum, the Duomo and the amphitheater square. It is also an excellent place to search for quality hand-made leather goods.

Whether you're into opera or not, it's well worth visiting Puccini's house. It looks pretty unprepossessing from the outside but the interiors have been lovingly maintained & there is a fascinating variety of material to look at & read. You really get a sense of how important a cultural figure he was & indeed still is, in Italy but especially... More

On a Saturday in the town in the blistering heat to do at least one thing touristy during our stay which was to visit the Puccini birthplace Museum on the Corte San Lorenzo. You buy your tickets across the street and then knock on the door of the building, which turns out to be occupied by ordinary Italian families in... More

Second floor flat restored back to what it would have looked like in the day of Puccini was a lovely way to spend an hour. There areapprox 8 rooms housing personal effects of Puccini and related to his musical writings and personal life. As a music teacher I found all the memorabilia very interesting.
