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.

This museum traces Verdi's life and times, by giving the political and historical context of his operas, from the first to last, across more than 20 exhibition rooms, filled with art works and costumes from various modern productions, with extracts from the operas played through...More

We are fans of Verdi as well as musicians so it had a special meaning to us. Next door to the birth home is the church where Verdi learned to play the organ and should also be visited. If you are in the area, I...More

If you happen to be in the area (we stopped in Busseto on a quiet Sunday for lunch) and have a little free time, I would recommend a pitstop. You have to be a true blue classical music fan to sincerely appreciate this property. It...More

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.

It is wonderful to see how this genius was living a simple live in the country side. You can see his efforts to create a peaceful garden to contemplate nature. Don't forget the store where you can get some excellent recordings of his music. I've...More
