  • This museum was a wonderful surprise. You can split your visit into two parts. Initially, after the historic rooms do palazzo Revoltella and its famous owner, philanthropist and circumspect businessman of the late 19th century. The second part (third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors) a very rich collection of modern art, consisting of over 700 exhibits. To end a system of terraces where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the port of Trieste. This museum is well worth a visit and takes about 2 hours. Recommended @gargio76

  • The Revoltella Museum of the city of Trieste is one of the most fascinating museums of all Triveneto. The most interesting part is, in our view, the historic palace complex. The collection is very wide, but there should be greater attention to foreign tourists. Relatively bookshop provided. Staff helpful and courteous, but unfortunately not in sufficient number in relation to the size of the Museum.

  • Elegant neo-Renaissance building situated in the Centre of Trieste, expresses the taste and elegance of its owner, Baron Revoltella, who was also Vice President of the Suez Canal company. Its very nice private library on the ground floor and the Ballroom on the second floor. Also notable is the art gallery hosted inside. Recommended.

  • 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.
