For a dull weather day or if its raining

The day we visited it was dull weather. The museum is interesting and covers the local history. There is also a place for refreshments.

There were Sorrento OWN Three tenors performing but the tickets has sold out and was unable to go in. We passed this building on our walks almost daily but never got the chance to go inside.

Sorrento does not have many museums or important sites, but this museum contains a variety of items collected by the noble Correale family over the centuries. Many things from paintings to sculptures to furniture, etc. to enjoy. Also, in the back is a wonderful garden with paths and places to sit. Would recommend

We were looking forward to visiting this museum and finding out about life in Sorrento but were somewhat disappointed. Having read that one family had donated their collectables I naïvely expected it to be set out like a house showing how they had lived but it was mainly room upon room of pictures and only took an hour to see...

A reasonable collection of painting, furniture and china but the display leaves a lot to be desired. Dry and dusty to say the least. However, take a look around and remember to walk through the garden to the bella vista beyond - well worth it!

This private museum was just along the via correale from our hotel and we were looking forward to visiting it. But we did find it disappointing, for the 11 euros each it cost (cash only) to get in, we found that it was certainly not value for money. Most of the many paintings were badly in need of cleaning and... More

Reviews are correct in saying the museum and its garden is a peaceful haven and certainly when Sorrento is busy in the summer it would be a good place to relax and get away from the crowds. The museum is more of a collection of a family's art and artefacts than anything else. It is a lovely building and there... More

This museum has many attractive displays- from paintings to porcelain and much in between. It is located in a beautiful house and is great to visit, especially on a hot day or a rainy day. The gardens are great for sitting and relaxing, too. or eating a snack- if you brought one. A peaceful oasis away from the tourist bustle... More

We visited the museum for the Three Tenors concert. Superb setting, wonderful singing in an intimate setting. Would love to do it all over again!
