Sorrento is for relaxing - not necessarily place for great history. But in a country famous for it's great history, one can miss out on local history. So this museum was a pleasant change of pace from the grandeur of Pompeii (just up the road) and Roma (where all roads lead to, of course). Surrounded by a serene garden full... More

Much extended and improved since our last visit. Over 4 floor covering local history and including an art exhibition. There is a lift if required. Staff on hand to help and answer questions. The garden leads to a sea view terrace. A great way to spend a couple of hours looking over the history of the place. 8 Euro entrance... More

Not knowing what to expect at this small museum, we were surprised to find much more elegant and sophisticated artifacts that we thought would be there. The building needs some loving attention as it is a bit shabby with peeling walls throughout, but that doesn't distract too much from the displays.

Neat museum if you like history. I was personally fascinated with the ancient roman artifacts, they're displayed right there in front of you with no barriers (i.e. glass cases) so you can get your nose right up to them to see the details. Pleasant way to spend a few hours.

Have visited here before. This is a really good place to go and certainly not dull or boring. There are some lovely views from the terraced archways but, unfortunately, as the trees have continued to grow, this impairs the views somewhat but it's still worth a visit. There are extensive gardens but they are not really looked after, which is... More

We visited Sorrento on our first day and decided to go for a wander towards the coast so we could find a good view. On our way we came across this building. Curious we decided to have a look. After paying our admission we were vaguely told to go right first and then go left across the hall. We still... More

Walk down the garden to the Belvedere and admire one of the best public views in town. A lift takes you half way up the 4 floors. A good selection of ceramics and some interesting mini collections of unusual items.

The collection was dreary, dusty and neglected and there was very little in it that sparked our interest. The building itself was pleasant and the garden very attractive. The entrance fee of 8 euros was steep, when you consider that you can get into the enormous Naples Archaeological museum for this. I wouldn't recommend it though it did us a... More

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.
