Owner description: Alle spalle di Santa Maria Maggiore, percorrete la silenziosa via Arena per raggiungere la Domus Magna: qui, al primo piano, ha sede il Museo Donizettiano. La visita permette di conoscere la vita, l’opera e la personalità di Gaetano Donizetti, protagonista del teatro musicale europeo del primo Ottocento. Partiture autografe, ritratti, lettere, oggetti della sua vita privata vi accompagnano in un affascinante percorso: a farvi da guida saranno le parole e la musica del grande compositore.

The museum is very small and contains relatively few artifacts. However, you will get a good story about the life of the great composer Gaetano Donizetti. Worth a visit if you are interested to know more about how the cultural life in Bergamo was developing in the 19th century.

We came to Bergamo on the way to another city and stumbled upon the Museo Donizettiano. It's a gem, a second floor devoted to Donizetti and especially to his education under Simone Mayr. Curator Mrs Bartolotti and librarian Mr Capitano were very welcoming and informative. If you like opera and are i Bergamo, you MUST go here. It will set you back only a few euros and a half hour. The old horns and playbills and portraits are fascinating.

Just for those who love Gaetano Donizetti and his music. Small museum but great atmosphere.
