Beautiful layout and gardens definitely worth a stroll but rude staff. Watch out when you book tickets the system changes the date on you if they are sold out. And they refuse to give you a refund.

Situated on four floors it has a fascinating collection of furniture, clocks, china, porcelain, fans and paintings. There are some amazing views of the coastline as you climb the building but the best... More

It took me 3 years to actually get to see this museum, but when I did, I wasn't dissapointed. It is well worth a visit if you like history of a country.

Every Tuesday and Saturday the opera group of five arrive and we had a super evening. After there are drinks and canapes and a chance to meet the performers. The museum is included if you wish but not a place to make a detour. Our rating is an average of both poor and excellent

Each Wednesday evening in May, June, September and October the museum holds a concert by 3 Tenors, starting at 9pm. There is a free glass of prosecco included which you can drink as you walk around the lovely gardens before taking your seat. It was a lovely evening with great voices, although short (there was an interval and it finished... More

We found the Museo Correale as a venue for our wedding whilst trying to find an alternative to the popular but extremely busy Cloisters. As soon as we arrived we were impressed with the beautiful lemon gardens to the rear and fell in love with the historic feel of the building. Despite visiting the Museum a number of times before...

Had a fantastic evening listening to Paola Fiudi soprano who was fantastic and Francesco Fortes,tenor. What a brilliant time we had. I am totally converted to enjoying opera. These two were brilliant!

We were lucky to have experienced The Three Tenors concert during Sorrento Opera season in the beautiful museum. Front row seats made the experience even more breathtaking, Their voices were outstanding and so powerful. It was difficult holding back tears when the muscians played my wedding music Intermezzo as it was my 10th wedding anniversary so it was even more... More

The house has a lift at the back giving access to all the floors. The house itself is impressive, particularly the staircase, but the contents are mediocre. The most interesting was the archaeological finds which are in the rooms to the left of the entrance on the ground floor. It would appear that most of the grounds have been sold... More
