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.

As a music teacher I thoroughly enjoyed this little museum. The highlight for me was seeing Puccini's own Steinway piano. They have some really interesting memorabilia including letters from Wagner and costumes from his operas. Loved it.

The museum is in the house where Puccini was born and raised. Well done with many interesting details and original documents. Tickets are available across the street and are 7 euro. Discounts for the young, old and groups. The museum is on the second floor (3 sets of stairs) and there is no elevator. Worth seeing if you love his... More

This relatively small museum holds a fascinating collection of memorabilia of the life and compositions of Giacomo Puccini. There are many photographs as well as original notes on the composers manuscripts. This would have to be a must for serious music students and music lovers.
