  • First Museum of Trieste, winter home of Baron Pasquale Revoltella, place on the fascinating Banks of Trieste, in this museum you can see the magnificent rooms of the first and second floors, and then passed through the third, the fourth and fifth, where you can admire the collections of the greatest painters and artists from Trieste of the 800, then finished a visit to the sixth floor featuring contemporary artwork. And between floors, you can't not linger for example, before the work of cutting the isthmus of Suez, the Terrace on the fifth floor, place of summer events, and an attractive terrace on the sixth floor, from where you can admire the Gulf and maybe admire beautiful sunsets ... All establishments deserve to be visited for their magnificent, history and mystery.

  • The first three floors of the Museum are actually the home of Baron Pasquale Revoltella and seeing the words "Gallery of modern art" at first glance you may get blown away by what we have faced: the history, however interesting, the founder of the Museum. Climbing the upper floors the visit can only turn the enthusiasm: colorful elegant lounges, huge dining rooms, but also libraries and austere writing desks, maps and documents relating to the participation of Baron at the opening of the Suez Canal. On the one hand, therefore, the wealth, the glory of patronage, which also led to the Museum building, the upper floors of the House, where you can enjoy a great view. The Museum, while not presenting significant works, is very interesting. I liked particularly intelligent and accurate placement of the works, especially of the sculptures that appear in the middle of the path.

  • I visited the Revoltella Museum and I fell in love! Has lots of beautiful paintings and is very interesting. For nothing tiring or boring. A must if you go to visit to Trieste!

  • 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.
  • It was a surprise to see such large collection of art in Trieste. Excellent! Especially paintings in top floors.
