Yes a wet day visit. Interesting inlay works in stone and wood some ceramics. Includes some very dark paintings. A collection of school of Posillipo paintings including some of Sorrento gorges. The path to the belvedere appeared to disappear into hotel grounds so it being wet I gave up, also partly because I was unaware what a belvedere is! Yes... More

This is a great place to escape from the limoncello tastes and other yellow colored products lining the walking streets of Sorrento. Retreat into the past and gaze at collections of paintings, figurines, clocks, cameras and more. The building is a bit old but that is a part of the charm. The gardens are pleasant and this is a relaxing... More

This museum is housed in an ancient mansion once owned by the noble Terranova family. The last of the line bequeathed it and all it's belongings of baroque furniture, paintings and ancient Roman artifacts to the city of Sorrento around 1900. It is a treasure trove of baroque art. The garden path out back leads to a belvedere that overlooks... More

I really enjoyed my visit! Sorrento is a very busy place, and the museum was cool and quiet - great to get away from the crowds. The collections of art, porcelain and other objects was lovely. The views were spectacular, especially from the picture window in the attic gallery. The gardens were a real treat, especially the terrace at the... More

We spent a couple of hours taking in the eclectic collection and were impressed that this was a private art collection. Having toured many outstanding European museums, this one is pretty average.

For 8 euro entrance ... a bit of a dear visit. Whilst everything is set out nice and easy. Things like the labels on exhibits are so small, you can't read them from behind the barrier ropes. Using more English would help as well, as many people do use it now on holiday abroad. All seemed a bit lacklustre. Nice... More

Well worth a visit to see the collection of Sorrentine art, furniture and porcelain. Would benefit from better signage and facilities (the 'coffee and snacks' sign leads to a couple of self-service machines, and the building itself suffers at little from the rigours of age (I know the feeling). The gardens are extensive and form a lovely oasis in this... More

We decided to visit the museum on an overcast day and found the place interesting - I was most intrigued to see the 19th century paintings of Sorrento and recognizing places that are still familiar today! The actual building is amazing, but looks like it could do with some urgent repairs before bits start falling off! The gardens are well... More

This museum is worth a quick visit as much for its building and access to a fine belvedere view as for the collections of paintings, furniture and other objets d'art it contains.

Large and interesting collection of art, furniture, China, glass, pottery and other items from the Correale brothers. There is also a Large garden you can walk through after visiting the museum.
