As Lucca is supposedly all about Puccini, I decided that a visit to Lucca would be not complete without visiting the museum. It was a pleasant introduction to his life & times. It’s nice that it’s set in a house.

I don't identify with the few critical comments about this magical place. Surely it can only be dull if you're not into Puccini and operatics. In which case, why would you go anyway? It doesn't set out to be an interactive theme park. This is...More

Lucca is proud of Puccini but this museum does not do him justice.Provides a series of snapshots into his life but in no particular order. Could be so much better.

This is a beautiful, well-presented museum of Puccini. Even if you don't know much about him, go. It's a treat.
