This museum has many floors of beautiful artwork. It includes wood inlay, sculpture, paintings, clocks, dishes, clothing. The building and grounds are also very interesting. Amazing views of the port, Naples and mount Vesuvius. Lots of stairs and walking in general around garden and grounds.

This mueum is a hidden gem and not well publicised but ideal for a rainy day! We spent 2hours here browsing the fine collection of art /ceramics clocks /marquetry etc arranged on 4 floors and with a large garden to wander around leading to a terrace overlooking the sea with fine views. They also hold concerts here. Quirky collection and well worth a visit .

Beautiful Villa with great views. Interesting collection, I especially loved the figurines on the third floor. Our hotel gave us free tickets which was great because we didn’t feel like making a big day trip in the rain. Cost of €8 is reasonable for the exhibit

The building is lovely and has access by lift or stairs.
they could have provided a lot more information as in some rooms everything was Italian and it is supposed to be for tourists too- not just locals.
Lots of collections of artifacts but no 'wow factor' for us unfortunately as had been expecting more history etc. Sorry!

This museum is primarily a collection of artefacts gathered by two brothers over the course of their lives. As such, there is no overriding theme to any of it and it feels a bit like rooting through a dead relative's cupboards (albeit a very wealthy dead relative). Some of the artefacts are quite remarkable, but the level of information provided is very limited, meaning there is only so much you can take from it.

The building itself is quite beautiful, as are the gardens. It was being set up for an event when we were there, which slightly limited our movements, but most was still open to us.

Really didn’t think we’d enjoy this as much as we did. Such an amazing show, totally entertaining and their voices...wow!!

Wow..... ! what a cracking venue for such a lovely evening listening to the Three Tenors. A superb concert, and if Opera is "your thing" this is a Must See event for your stay in Sorrento.

A welcome haven away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento’s tourist packed lanes. A lovely palazzo with a hotch potch of impressive marquetry pieces (Bottocelli’s Primavera as you have never seen her before), a variety of art, and classical statues. Views of Vesuvius, the bay of Napoli and the palazzo gardens can be enjoyed from the majestic rooms with their Murano chandeliers.

This show/concert is really good but can’t give it an ‘Excellent’ really based on the price and time. We booked through our hotel, The Ambasciatori just a few minutes walk away. We only booked 2 nights before the gig and there were only a few tickets left. The top €75 tickets include a pre drink prosecco/wine and a subsequent ‘tasting’ that is basically a limoncello type drink after the gig in the garden and a couple of almond chocolates. The gig is in one of the main display rooms in the museum. Great acoustics, no mics or speakers required. The performance consists of two sets about 35 minutes each - so short!! The audience is only about 100 strong and it’s very personal so really good. The piano cello and violin backing all great, and the 3 tenors unquestionably fabbo singers. If you love opera type singing or even if it’s not your thing I would recommend it, but it is expensive and it’s a short gig. We’ve paid much less to see known stars at the O2 and Wembley.

This museum is a short walk from Piazza Tasso on Via Correale. The large villa was once owned by the Correale Brothers. The villa was later donated—with the bulk of their collection—to the city of Sorrento.

There are four floors filled with artifacts, Neapolitan paintings, clocks, porcelain and ceramic collections. There are even fragments of an ancient Egyptian carving found in the region. I liked seeing the “death mask” of the author Torquato Tasso.

Outside is a quaint garden decent for a stroll. Today the museum also serves as a popular outside Musical Theater.

We were lucky that the Plaza Hotel gave us free vouchers to tour this museum. Normally the cost is eight euros.

We quickly found out there is no AC. The windows were open, though, giving fresh air and views towards the Bay of Naples.

We really can’t give Museo Correale five stars. The administration does not allow for inside photographs. Even the Met in NYC—with the most highly prized collections in the world—allows non-flashed photographs.

There is a lift for those that don’t want to take the steps up. And, finally, if you are in the garden, be careful if there was a recent rain. You could slip like I did over the dirt path marveling at the flowers and lemon trees.

If you have time, interested in the arts or even a visit on a rainy day, Museo Correale can keep your attention.
