A very interesting look at inlay wood art from the past and present. No crowd when we went. The collection is in an old Barron's house which is, in itself, interesting.

This small museum is definitely worth a detour to visit it. We enjoyed the three floors of antique beautifully crafted furniture, tools, pictures, etc. Plus the modern work is well worth looking at. The marquetry is truly outstanding. The owner of the villa, Alessandro Florentino,...More

Inlaid wood is a beautiful craft and here there are many examples of this art form. The palazzo where it is located is also very interesting and worth a look. There are also other crafts and paintings, everything makes for a very pleasant visit.

This museum holds a beautiful collection of inlaid wood and other antiques. The building it is housed in is a deceptively grand space offering a sense of retreat from the busy Sorrento streets. Helpful man in reception was enthusiastic about the collection and informative.
