Art Museum Museum
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.

  • 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.
