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.

If you like opera then I would recommend it but otherwise there probably won't be a huge amount for you here.

The house Puccini was born in and lived there until aged 22 has recently been renovated. His piano is there and the house has been refurbished in the style of the period. For 15 euros we had a lovely tour of the house with a charming English interpreter. This included a mini opera which lasted for nearly an hour and... More

A nice, modest museum dedicated to the life of Puccini, with friendly staff, and a reasonable entry price.

Wonderful restoration of Puccini's birthplace. It houses original sheet music, handwritten compositions of Puccini. Also, retired costumes and programs of opening operas. A room houses his original desk and samples of sheet music where he actually worked to compose. Truly a thrill to take this little tour.

What a beautiful job the curators have done in creating the atmosphere that Puccini has just left the building. So many of his compositions and letters are displayed and period furniture including a piano he had. Knowledgeable staff adds value to the experience. Gift shop has some memorable items.

As we toured around the ancient walled city of Lucca we felt we could not leave without learning more about the great Puccini. We are not into opera but to find ourselves in the birthplace of one of the true masters of the art....... We ended up spending an hour and a half and learned so much about this very... More

The museum is open daily in summer from 10 am in an old building with no lift up many flights of stairs. There is supposed to be a hoist for wheel chairs but as the former Puccini flat is not all on one level this would be a problems with two rooms including the former kitchen being at a lower... More
