This antique noble mansion converted in museum lies not far from the very heart of Sorrento. Three storeys are full of beautiful 1600-800 paintings, furniture, clocks, ceramic works, books and textiles. Even if you are not a museum fanatic, the garden and the scenery view from third floor could still have entertaining value.

This museum is in the ancient home of the Terranova family who gave their home and it's contents to Sorrento. There is beautiful furniture, artifacts and porcelain items. The gardens are quite beautiful and there is an amazing view of Naples port. You can also see mount Vesuvius, which is an incredible backdrop!!

The Correale Palace is originally from the XIVth century. The rich family collected art from around and more faraway. A visit to this Museum is an absolute must for any art lover. The Neapolitan influence is to be discovered in most of the art crafts. This family museum was opened to public around 100 years ago. The collection is valuable... More

This museum has a lot to see but it is not well cared for. Many of the paintings were so dirty that you could not see any of the detail, and it was only by reading the information that you got any idea of what was being shown in the picture.

Worth a visit but make sure you have plenty of time as they are open odd hours. We visited on a Sunday and only less than an hour. We should have looked at the opening hours as they close at 1.30pm and were not told this on buying our tickets. Not cheap either. Range of interesting objects including some roman... More

Yes a wet day visit. Interesting inlay works in stone and wood some ceramics. Includes some very dark paintings. A collection of school of Posillipo paintings including some of Sorrento gorges. The path to the belvedere appeared to disappear into hotel grounds so it being wet I gave up, also partly because I was unaware what a belvedere is! Yes... More

This is a great place to escape from the limoncello tastes and other yellow colored products lining the walking streets of Sorrento. Retreat into the past and gaze at collections of paintings, figurines, clocks, cameras and more. The building is a bit old but that is a part of the charm. The gardens are pleasant and this is a relaxing... More

This museum is housed in an ancient mansion once owned by the noble Terranova family. The last of the line bequeathed it and all it's belongings of baroque furniture, paintings and ancient Roman artifacts to the city of Sorrento around 1900. It is a treasure trove of baroque art. The garden path out back leads to a belvedere that overlooks... More

I really enjoyed my visit! Sorrento is a very busy place, and the museum was cool and quiet - great to get away from the crowds. The collections of art, porcelain and other objects was lovely. The views were spectacular, especially from the picture window in the attic gallery. The gardens were a real treat, especially the terrace at the... More
