Interesting little museum filled with artwork, porcelains and other artefacts that the brothers have collected over the years.. The garden is amazing follow a pathway and then you get to a terrace which has a lovely panoramic view overlooking the bay of Naples... Well worth a visit.

Some furniture items, clocks and paintings. There's a garden that leads to hotel grounds, but nothing spectacular.

The Correale di Terranova Museum is a lovely walk not far from Tasso Piazzo. The museum is filled with fascinating artwork that the Correale brothers had collected and is now part of the museum. The gardens are fabulous and are located behind the museum.

The grounds are nice enough, but the contents of this breathtakingly average museum are not worth the effort. It's a little bit like a not particularly well organised antiques shop, with a lot of average landscapes, a few Roman relief fragments and various dusty knik-knaks. What a bore. Save your efforts for a decent museum in Naples.

A little expensive for what was on display. The gardens are worth walking through to the fine viewpoint on the cliffs

Situated just behind the piazza Tasso this is worth a look if only to see how much Sorrento has been built up above the ruins.

A sweet little museum with a large and diverse collection from the wealthy Correale family. The variety of items is vast, with sculpture from ancient times through to early cinematography cameras. Excellent and gorgeous collection of clocks and inlaid wood furniture were among the highlights for us. The glassware and china were also quite beautiful. Well worth a visit on... More

We toured this wonderful museum with a guide named Celestina who was absolutely wonderful. every picture, stature and room had a story to tell of the history of southern Italy and Sorrento and surrounding areas. A very worthwhile experience with a good guide.

Found this museum around the back of our hotel. Fascinating artefacts and we'll worth a visit. Also lovely gardens to the rear and we followed a path that lead to a terrace overlooking the sea.
