Very well done and away from tourist destinations - I recommend to start with the movie in the upper floor (in Italian) which provides an excellent impression about the life of this world class conductor.

Why not make a small detour before/after your visit to the Parco Ducale? Unless, of course, you want to make it a destination. I found it well worth it. Pictures and mementos of the Maestro in all his glory. Small museum, not overwhelming with friendly...More
