  • Truly a museum that combines aspects of life of the nineteenth Baron Revoltella of Habsburg Trieste with the modernity of the spaces created by the architect Carlo Scarpa, modern and contemporary section. A good guide did the rest. Quibble: I would put the plate in all works under the title, the author, technique, dimensions. Oh well that there are audio guides, but the visitor used to find even so the data.

  • 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.
  • Nice museum in Trieste, the old part is very interesting.
