We enjoyed seeing Puccini’s home and artifacts, letters, plus photos from his life. The descriptions are in English and Italian. The room set up like the garrett in La Boheme was fascinating. Our visit made us want to learn more about his life.

Museum took a few minutes to fly through--had a few things in it that Puccini owned--could have skipped this attraction. Really enjoyed the Puccini concert at the church though!

Apart from visiting Lucca for the historic city and architecture its a must to visit the Puccini Museum to appreciate the man and his achievements delivering opera to all parts of the world. This a must. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the city.

The Puccini Museum is well worth a visit whilst in Lucca the home town of Puccini and there is a lot of information which is very informative and makes you feel part of Lucca
