Museum is located in a small 2 storey house approximately a 300 metre walk from the end of the Ponte Giuseppe Verdi on the other side of the river (although there didn't appear to be any water in it) from the Centro storico.
The small house contains a great deal of memorabilia from clothes worn by the Maestro and some principals in the operas he directed, to posters, letters, photos, manuscripts and much more. On the second floor there is a room with some chairs where there is a very good film, with English sub-titles, on the life of Toscanini that runs for approximately 40 minutes. This film not only depicts Toscanini's musical achievements but also his moral stance against Mussolini's Fascists and Hitler's Nazis.
If visiting you should be aware that there are 37 steps to get to the 2nd floor of the house and that it is not air-conditioned.
Also, rather strangely, there are no music CD's of Toscanini's performances or other souvenirs of any nature for sale here.
