This is a sweet museum that gives a glimpse into the master's life. We enjoyed each room, the dioramas were instructive, and the building was charming. Almost best of all was the receptionist in the museum. He was so enthusiastic, with comments like, "Wait till you see...!!". We enjoyed it all and love Lucca.

This house contains his piano, original compositions, correspondence, photos, wardrobes from premier performances of operas, and original posters announcing performances. Period furniture although not Puccini's is still interesting in context. I believe that enough material is presented to give the visitor a glimpse into Puccini's life. i don't think you need to be an opera aficionado to appreciate this museum.

I am not an opera fan but very much enjoyed the Puccini Museum. Very good descriptions of both the exhibits and Puccini's life and work. Best of all is the recreation of the study where he composed his work. Accessing the museum is a bit unusual but not a great problem: one is directed to the nearby museum bookshop and... More

On Saturday at midday there is the guided tour in Italian, Matteo was fantastic, it lasted about 1.5 hours, it was a tour-de-force, not at all boring. After it we understood the life of the the Maestro and it was very fascinating, it is privately run and they deserve all the support which they can get.

Really enjoyed looking around this museum. Lots of manuscripts, pictures, etc.. and as you go round there is some of Puccini's most famous arias playing. Highly atmospheric and a must visit for anyone who loves music.

Very nice presentations of Puccini's life, including great costumes from his famous operas. Many photos, paintings and sculptures of his face are in the house as are several opera scripts and letters from friends and colleagues. One caution - this museum is two long flights up by stairs from the ground floor. Lovely once you get there, but hard to... More

My daughter is an opera fan & classical singer so this was a must on our visit to Lucca. Frankly it was a little disappointing. The rooms are nicely set up with a few pieces of furniture from the period & there are cases of old scores, photos & letters to & from Puccini....some of them had been translated into... More

Lucca is a charming walled city with Puccini Home/Museum. From Florence (Firenze SMN station), you can have a pleasant half-day excursion to Lucca by train. Round trip train fare for an adult is only € 15.00. The train tickets can be easily purchased even via online in advance if you want to avoid currency conversion. Online ticket purchase requires you... More
