We decided to go here because of the recommendation in Rough Guide. The building itself is fabulous, and some of the contents are very interesting. All have English translations. The upper two floors have clocks and ceramics, which is a nice contrast to paintings and sculpture on the lower two floors. The lady at the ticket desk was on duty... More

Nice place quite interesting. Takes about an hour to see the exhibits. The building itself is good plus there is a large quiet garden to walk through .

We did not expect such quality in this small museum with a spectacular setting, The building is simply superb. The views from the third floor is worth the visit. The gardens are beautiful and strolling through them calms your soul. The small collection will interest you. A good stop during your stay.

The museum contains the collection of a prominent local family over a number of generations. It reflects their taste in art and craft and gives the feeling of what it was like in their time. We particularly liked the garden , the Belvedere, with orchards of the famous Sorrento lemons leading to the waterfront . What a tranquil old worldly... More

Most beautiful and romantic wedding location! Our pictures rival anything I have ever seen. They can be taken in various places inside and outside in the lovely garden. Staff were wonderful. Old world charm and elegance that you won't find on a beach!

This is not a large museum so it does not take a lot of time to go through. Also, not everything is written in multiple languages so you have to glean what you can when only Italian is provided on items. There were lovely gardens that we enjoyed walking through after seeing the museum.

From Sorrento train station, walk straight down in front of you, through a modern shop/restaurant development and a small gardens area and turn right on the road and you'll come the museum facing you. Arriving about 4 pm (they were still on summer opening hours for another couple of weeks) we had the place virtually to ourselves, only seeing two... More

The Museum is a beautiful building and has an amazing ceremony room where we held our wedding this year (Sept 2013). The grounds are amazing too. When we come back to Sorrento for our anniversary we will take a proper visit around the Museum and take in its full glory.
