  • Worth a visit to see the art, rooms and furniture. A nice collection and variety of Italian art - portraits, landscapes, etc. Well worth the visit while exploring Triests. 
  • 6 floors (if I remember correctly) that can be a pleasant stroll, because so much information is really very very lacking. A mix of styles on the top floors which mixes down to period furnishings. It all feels very curious, open to criticism, can be improved, but I think it deserves to be seen.

  • Unique Museum born from the merger of 3 buildings for artwork of shoe. Revoltella's House beautiful, men really far-sighted and very extravagant, not only towards his contemporaries but also toward posterity we can admire its legacies. The Museum part precisely from the House of Tycoon: beautiful house from the early ' 800 where all rooms have remained almost unchanged. It then moves to the Museum of contemporary art of ' 900 and where you can admire a commendable selection of works, from paintings to sculptures. If the weather permits, exit to the terrace, where you can admire the Gulf of Trieste bird's eye. The only flaw is the lack of an audio guide. Little courtesy, moreover, by the responsible acceptance. And few staff in the Museum. Any person could steal undisturbed or perform acts of vandalism.

  • 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.
