Don't forget to buy your ticket across the square before you enter the museum. The museum itself is in the house where Puccini lived with his family. You can see letters, sheets of music written by Puccini of course, pictures. You will get a map...More

It is always a wonderful place to visit and re-visit. A very informative introduction to the Maestro and his operas. Periodically there are new additions made making it a place to visit again. And a room not to missed is the Turandot room with its...More
