There's lots to see at this lovely museum and its a lot bigger than it appears from the entrance. There's paintings by some of the famous masters, clocks, fans, ceramics and furniture. Don't miss the walk to the belvederes ( we were puzzled and followed the path through the garden into the short tunnel and found ourselves at a patio... More

Multistory old villa with lots of unrelated artifacts from Roman times to the 19th century. Nice setting though not kept up well, and absolutely, positively don't go on a Saturday in May. Got there at 9:30 and had the place to ourselves for 1/2 an hour. Then the hordes of Italian tour groups arrived. Clogged up the stairways, were loud... More

Very close to the main town square, Piazza Tasso. Lots of lovely inlaid wood furniture. Many paintings by Neapolitan artists of the last 5 centuries. Interesting ceramic displays on the top floor. Since the Counts of Terranova died and left their house and contents to the town in 1902 other donors have started donating smaller collections so there is a... More

A beautiful setting for our wedding. The museum is an impressive building in itself. The entrance through the arches, the main staircase and 'room of mirrors' (where our wedding ceremony was held) gives the museum an almost palatial feel. The gardens are lovely and a perfect setting for wedding photographs. The museum staff are very friendly and helpful and helped... More

My wife and I stumbled upon the museum while strolling about in Sorrento. We paid the small admission fee and took the tour. We were required to check our backpack at the front deck, and did so. The museum consists of four floors, bisected by the entrance hall. There is much to see on all floors: paintings, sculpture, ceramics, furnishings,... More

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.
