  • Although many of the artists in the modern part was not known because it is mainly artists from Friuli, were many works of good quality, and some of which pleased me very well. The "old" part is very magnificent and feeling a little life at that time.

  • This gallery was such a surprise. The paintings are so beautiful and the artists are mainly local. It is advertised as a museum of Modern Art but, on the whole, the art is very accessible. Enjoy. 
  • Finding himself in Trieste it is worth visiting this museum. In addition to admire the interiors of the Palace has a broad overview on many painters.

  • It was a surprise to see such large collection of art in Trieste. Excellent! Especially paintings in top floors.
  • Born from the desire of Baron Pasquale Revoltella, leaving alla città di Trieste his home and art collection, the Museum has been further developed in the 20th century, becoming an important institution for modern and contemporary art.

  • One of the finest museums in Trieste, divided into two distinct parts: the splendid historical residence of Baron Revoltella, with much of the historic furniture, and the Museum of modern art, exhibitions and conferences.
