This museum and the collections it houses were donated to the city to create a museum around 100 years ago. The result is a wonderful building, denuded of its home comforts and an eclectic mix of pieces.

we love local museums and this did not disappoint. The building is faded glory as is many of Italian buildings. But I love that. The collection was eclectic but there were some lovely pieces. There is a lift so most of the building is accessible to the disabled. there is also a small garden which leads to a terrace with... More

Unfortunately much of the artwork and ceramics on view were not to our taste, but the Palazzo itself is magnificent although it and the gardens are sadly run down. Many of the paintings and much of the furniture is badly in need of restoration and such is the profusion that you can't see a lot of it. The museum has... More

The palace is in need of restoration but if you go through the arch to the back you will find an 18th century tiled wall that is beautiful and hints at past glories.

Lots of beautiful inlaid marble and tortoiseshell cabinets, roman artefacts, china, glass and paintings (which could do with a good clean - many were dark and murky). A huge former villa with cool rooms to wander around. The gardens are full of lemons and agapanthus and the path leads down under the road into the terrace of a smart hotel... More

This is quite an interesting visit to what was formerly a family villa. Ancient sculpture, ceramics, paintings, furniture and local inlaid wood work. The variety of artifacts and manageable size of the museum made this an easy visit. Be sure also to go through the gardens down to a terrace overlooking the sea, wonderful vistas from here and from the... More

We were in Sorrento for the week of May 16 - 23, 2012. Except for shopping, there's not much to do in the city, but there is one good museum, Palazzo Correale (7 Euros/person). It was donated to the city in 1902 by the last remaining heirs of a wealthy family that lived there, and its five floors give some... More
