It's not a huge museum, but the examples of marquetry (inlaid furniture & ornaments) were quite fascinating. I found only one really good painting, though there are lots of interesting portraits. I really enjoyed my visit, but it doesn't really compare to the great museums of the world.

Was pleasantly surprised. If you are interested in furniture china fans there are lots to see. Not expensive either. Worth a visit.

Lots of displays, nice gardens to wander around. Only 8 euro and takes an hour plus to see everything. Worth seeing to get a feel for the history of Sorrento.

Visited with 3 of our children whilst on holiday in Sorrento. This is a small museum in a lovely old house with lots to look at but no great works of art. Good views from the terraces across Sorrento.

some interesting pieces of furniture and art but could easily have lived without it. Much better off travelling to the museum in Naples

We got married at the museum in July 2014 and it was brilliant. The museum itself is small and quirky with lovely staff that will show you round. There are some amazing old artefacts and furniture throughout and with it being tucked away it is not very busy. They were brilliant during our wedding and it was perfect.

A little museum that has little interesting features. The garden route to the seaside was good. The right entrance fee should be 2~3 EUR.
