Interesting artefacts and informative talk from one of the guides. Quite compact so expect to shuffle from room to room. Loved the resident cats.

Very interesting place for lovers of Puccini, his original compositions displayed, don't expect to much furniture it is quiet bare.

If you like Puccine worth a visit, buy your ticket from the ticket office in the square first, as you also get to see a couple of films about him.

You buy the tickets in a noticeable building on the square where Puccini's statue sits. The museum itself is across the square. Its the apartment where the composer was born although he did not actually live here for very long although the house was in...More
