This villa contains set designs for all his operas, each room representing an opera.The audio guide is very informative as to what was going on in his life and the influences for the time when the respective works were written. Well worth a visit.

How can this possibly be called as a "National Museum of Verdi"? There is NOTHING really connected to Verdi apart from the names of the operas he composed and the sound of his music: no scores, letters, texts, no analysis of the works, only!!! poor...More

A marvellous mixture of paintings themed to suit the operas being described in the the appropriate rooms plus a sprinkling of costumes worn by famous singers during the relevant operas. The location is beautiful and there is a relatively well stocked souvenir shop.

Mainly a multi-media of projections and recordings, not of artifacts or tangible memorabilia of Verdi. I felt "tricked" a bit. Could be interesting if one has had no exposure to opera or Verdi and is a neophyte to the medium.

We love Verdi so it's just wonderful to really get into the spirit of the great man by visiting his birth house in Roncole Verdi. Then this museum with the enchanting small theatre and then his home. This was fascinating and strongly recommended.

Idea of museum is good. Each room one opera. Rooms are grooped by period. BUT: in beatiful rooms with beatiful wallpapers is only a few reproductions and some of costume with minimum of comments.
