“A bit disappointing..”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

I had been trying to get to see this for a while but ended up being a bit of a disappointment. Ok, its filled with lots of Puccini's letters which are quite interesting but there is not much else apart from this "display" of his fame. . Personally , as someone else in an earlier review said , go to one of the opera nights in the St. Giovanni church. At around 16 euros ,I found this much more fun to go to.

“Worth a look if you are a Puccini fan”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

He was born in the house. It has a lot of his manuscripts and letters. Also some clothes, his Steinway piano on which he composed Turandot. And some costumes.

“A must for Puccini fans”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We decided to visit as a change to tombs and churches. Here they have a great selection of Puccini memorabilia, music scores and letters he wrote, news articles about him and original opera concert brochures etc.The music scores and letters were really interesting to look at and in immaculate condition.

“Home of the Great Puccini”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Travelers who love opera should visit this restored home of the young Puccini and then take the train to Torre del Lago to visit the home he maintained as a creative adult. The apartment in Lucca has truly interesting documentation of his work and early years.
