We visited this place as we got free access to part of the exhibition with our Arena di Verona ticket. We were expecting somewhere a bit boring with a few dusty moth eaten exhibits and a bit of background music. Somewhere to spend half an hour out of the hot sun. Boy were we wrong! First visit we must have... More

My wife and I are both musicians by training and really enjoyed visiting the museum. There are 4 separate but related exhibitions, which somewhat confuses what is on offer, so I will explain them. Firstly there is the main AMO museum which explains the various components that go together to create an opera: the music, the libretto (the words and... More

Following an evening at the the opera at the Arena on Saturday we went to the wonderful Arena Museum on the Sunday. This is a place strictly for opera lovers with fine displays of costumes, scenery, original manuscripts, videos of past performances, the history of the Arena operas and the title and leading singers of every Arena opera since 1913....

We visited the whole all sections, which costs 10 euros if you have a recent arena opera ticket. The guides all spoke excellent English and were also enthusiasts for the subject. The section on Pavarotti was particularly interesting and very moving. We enjoyed 6 hours there. The presentation of the exhibits was just superb.

We spent 3 hours and could have spent more. If you take your opera ticket you get all 4 exhibitions for €10, a bargain. The exhibition (s), not to be confused with the Arena tour itself, are within a palazzo once lived in by Napoleon but this is not advertised at all. The ceilings and wall paintings were as good...

I've seen a few Opera Museums (the museum of La Scala, Palais Garnier, etc.) If you have the time and the money-I think this museum is interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the video's of past Arena performances. (I've seen Aida twice at the Arena but I still enjoyed the video's of Aida because it is such a spectacle!) I... More

We spent quite a long time here, longer than we thought, but mainly enjoyed the Pavarotti exhibit which I believe will not be a permanent display. A lot of information on Verdi (Aida) also. We particularly enjoyed reading the letters to Pavarotti and listening to his singing on his own and also with friends (Pavarotti and friends). Without the Pavarotti... More

My wife and I are both opera singers. As both of us are pretty knowledgeable about opera we both had high expectations that the first opera museum in the world would give visitors a taste of the rich history and variety of operas... something worthwhile the 10 euro admission. We were very disappointed. The museum is only a tribute to... More

I visited this museum this December during my second visit to Verona. I was reluctant to visit it the first time I was in the city during the summer as I had not imagined a museum for Opera can be interesting. Then the second time I decided to go and was positively surprised. This is a good place to visit... More

Last week I was in Verona with my husband and we decided to go to this new museum the day after we attended a performance of Tosca at the Arena. I was very surprised and pleased to see so many original, famous pieces of Opera history. This a must see for those visiting Verona!
