My husband and I stopped in for a quick tour of Puccini's Home when we were exploring Lucca. It was well-done, and gave a great snapshot of the composer's life. The costumes were impressive, and the handwritten letters and artifacts were in great condition. I...More

My partner enjoyed the Museum. She thought it gave some insight into the domestic buildings you see from the outside but never had a chance to enter. I didn't think there was much to see. The drawers full of letters seemed the most interesting part...More

We enjoyed seeing Puccini’s home and artifacts, letters, plus photos from his life. The descriptions are in English and Italian. The room set up like the garrett in La Boheme was fascinating. Our visit made us want to learn more about his life.

Museum took a few minutes to fly through--had a few things in it that Puccini owned--could have skipped this attraction. Really enjoyed the Puccini concert at the church though!

Tucked away off a Piazza Cittadella where all the restaurants are named after Puccini's operas. The rooms in his birth house house a great number of original letters and manuscripts which take you back to times that we can relate to.

An interesting museum and very well organised. However, playing Mozart opera arias as background music in a Puccini museum is not the best of ideas.

An interesting walk through Puccini's early years and his works, with lots of memorabilia. If the guided tour is too short you can revisit the rooms at your leisure. I chose the 12:00 English speaking tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ticket office is a...More

Apart from visiting Lucca for the historic city and architecture its a must to visit the Puccini Museum to appreciate the man and his achievements delivering opera to all parts of the world. This a must. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the city.
