Varied collections of art, gathered by two local brothers. Furniture, paintings and china. Worth a browse, although I spent more time in the garden and down on the terrace - the Belvedere. Lovely views of the bay. The café turned out to be a vending machine, which on the day I visited was just partially stocked with a few chocolate... More

Two adults interested in the place and period visited one hot August day. 16€ for the both of us. 24 medium size rooms over 4 floors with a small courtyard. Some lovely art and furniture from a range of history 16-19th century. Easy access with stairs, lift and disabled access to all floors. Poor air conditioning however meant that it... More

Me and My husband got married in Sorrento on 3rd July 2015 in the "Sala degli specchi" room upstairs. The setting is just amazing and each guest was in awe on how beautiful the place was. The room was beautifully set up for the day and we had some refreshments downstairs in the lovely garden. The organizer that works there... More

We spent a very pleasurable few hours here wandering through the large vaulted and cool rooms filled with some fantastic artefacts from Italy's historical artistic prowess.

We have just returned from our wedding in Sorrento. We were married at Correale di Terranova Museum on Friday 31st July at 4.30pm. It is one of only two places licensed to hold official ceremonies in Sorrento apart from the usual Cloisters in the city. The museum were both friendly and helpful. Clemenzia manages all weddings held there and it... More

An interesting museum with an eclectic mix of exhibits, belongings of a local family in the house they owned, including Roman ruins, paintings, porcelain and furniture. Everything was well labelled, in English as well as Italian. There is a nice walk through the gardens to the belvedere overlooking the sea. Overall a good way to spend a couple of hours.

This was a ice place to spend a hour or two, with a good mixture of interesting ancient architecture, paintings, porcelain and furnishings. The villa it is housed in is quite splendid, and the gardens are quaint, leading to a belvedere. The hotel adjacent is very good, the staff friendly we had a good good lunch, try the cannelloni...

This museum contains wonderful treasures and is well worth a visit. However, in my opinion, this museum lacks something. They could tell a much better story about the family that owned it, the house, the contents, etc. The museum contains works of art collected by two Correale brothers. There are 24 rooms to see and the items are exhibited in... More

Lovely museum with a wide range of artefacts and fine art spanning several centuries over three floors. We overlooked it from our hotel and we are so glad we visited. The building itself is a glorious IXth century villa with lovely views. A bonus is the garden and a path takes you to a stunning viewpoint over the bay. Highly... More

Very nice little museum. Well worth a visit. You can walk through the lemon trees to a nearby hotel garden where you will have amazing views of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples.
