Museo Revoltella, Trieste

4.6
#3 of 21 in Museums in Trieste
Part baronial mansion, part art gallery, Museo Revoltella is home mostly to 19th-century paintings and sculptures. This historic neo-Renaissance building was home to Baron Pasquale Revoltella, and its three floors still express the elegance and wealth of its owner. Acquired by the city of Trieste following the baron's death in 1872, the museum was expanded to the adjacent buildings in order to offer additional exhibition spaces. Start by exploring the luxurious residence's many rooms and all the works, furniture, and books they contained. Then, move on to the modern exhibits to see the approximately 350 paintings and sculptures on display. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Trieste holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museo Revoltella and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Take half a day, it's worth it. From the outside you can't tell, but inside you'll find an impressive amount of works, many of the breathtaking beauty above all "after her first communion" by Carl Smith.

    Beautiful historic building held well with furniture, stuccos, floors and ceilings. After visiting the Museum there are 3 floors of important works of modern art. To see definitely looked at the price of the ticket.

    Top marks to the surprise of a historic home designed in his time with original and innovative details that still can strike the visitor. Very well preserved and enhanced by a policy strongly the incentive tourism (fare derisory in relation to the proposal of the venue and audio guide available for free via the app). The intervention of the shoe then guide the visitor clearly in step from the historic to the contemporary art museum itself. The collection is certainly marginal and mostly local style, but some pieces of the modern section remain considerable. Appreciable effort quantitatively small but qualitatively significant contemporary:. Here contemporary art is just a backdrop. The ticket you pay again to the old building and the adjacent scarpinano recovery

  • My daughter and I were looking for the Natural History Museum when we found out that the car GPS took us to entirely the wrong place. Fortunately the Revoltella Museum was there instead! The house is beautifully restored to the time period, which gave us a great opportunity to see how the upper class lived in the Napoleonic period. Lasciviously decorated rooms throughout the whole house. Happy accident and we loved it. A big plus for me was the Suez Canal dedicated room.
  • Hidden gem for architecture lovers since the reconstruction of Carlos Scapa in 1963.
  • It was a surprise to see such large collection of art in Trieste. Excellent! Especially paintings in top floors.
  • Nice museum in Trieste, the old part is very interesting.
  • Nice! Nice and beautiful! Located in a somewhat hidden, not you'll immediately notice the Museum although actually, not really the smallest thing that exists. Nice view inside! I was lucky enough to go there late and I really enjoyed the whole visit because there I was pretty much just me, the disadvantage is the fatigue that I could've watched lightly a few things. Highly recommended. The visit in accommodation of Revoltella is interesting.
