It was late afternoon on a Saturday and we weren't sure we could gain admittance because it looked like a small wedding reception was happening. We were delighted with a guide that made this museum truly meaningful and a true delight to experience! This building is a Mansion with Old World craftsmanship throughout. The Salon with the Tiepolo drawings were... More

We were recieved shortly (an hour) before closing time and given an intelligent, coherent and responsive guided tour. The guide was clearly an academic rather than a scripted automaton. The collection is fantastically rich. Generally I hate guided tours. This one was highly satisfactory. I believe that unguided tours are available at weekends and bank holidays.

Extensive art collection , modern to Renaissance. The Renaissance collection is worth the admission alone! An old elegant home houses this museum, and the living rooms have been beautifully restored. The 19th century kitchen was intact, with the stoves and cookware. Very unusual. Personal guides assisted us, mostly in English, to appreciate the collection.

Not far from the sea and the center pedestrian area, this home previously belonging to a family of Trieste merchants was donated along with all its contents to the city. Besides the incredible collection of 246 Tiepolo sketches, the 4th largest collection in the world, and other fantastic artwork, there is a plaster statue hall. Perhaps the most intriguing part...

Very interesting museum of you want to see How Triestes commercial elite / aristocracy used to live. Nice big rooms full of antiques. Amazing drawings of Tiepolo. The Sta Chiara tryptichis old but not the best one i' ve ever seen. Go for the splendid interiors, btw big chance you are alone ...

I had the museum virtually to myself and was able to wander from room to room enjoying beautiful paintings and pictures, tapestries, furniture, china and room decorations. Very good helpful notes to most rooms in English.

Up where the Castle is, there is Cathedral, an underground Museum which is full of arte facts and sculptures. Very nice and interesting of course but there is water running down when it rains and spoils the fan of the visit. It is part of a visit to the Castle.

I spent 90 minutes here and enjoyed all of it. The guides who were on hand to point me to the places of interest were very good. One guide especially took me to see the Tryptich of St Chiara and also to the basement to see the exhibition of art which had been hidden since circa 1940 and removed from... More

What I especially liked at a guided tour in this museum was the combination of the Sartorio family's history and the one of Trieste, the city. Indeed you can visit this museum only guided, which is highly recommended, since the displays aren't very informative. I was highly impressed by the size of the mansion and the diverse objects and styles... More
