Really enjoyed looking around this museum. Lots of manuscripts, pictures, etc.. and as you go round there is some of Puccini's most famous arias playing. Highly atmospheric and a must visit for anyone who loves music.

anyone recall what the museum's hours were? I have an opera singer in my family but we have only 24 hours in Lucca, hoping to fit it in and may work if they are open early enough:)
