Helpful staff, quiet place, 6 floors of beautiful art . Don't miss it. It will cost 7 € for entrance, but we got a reduction , and only paid 5 € because the air conditioner was not working in the 5th and 6th floor, which wasn't bad at all compared to stiffing heat outside. No fee for children.

We were on a cruise and visited the Tourist Information office to enquire what they recommended we saw. The lady recommended this Museum of Art down the road from the office if we liked art. What a find. It was as the last few reviews have said really worth a visit and we enjoyed everything we saw there. We are... More

The house is fascinating. It lets you see how a wealthy resident lived. Well worth visiting. The gallery was a welcome change from religious art though the number of paintings on each wall made it a bit overwhelming.

New part is very full of contemporary Italian paintings. The original palace is lovely, interesting and really nice. Well worth visiting.

don't miss this sleeper, the original house on the first floor is nice but they have a great art collection on top, take your time, it's not crowded and be prepared to spent a couple of hours looking at their late 19th and early 20th century art.

You begin by starting up on the 6th floor to some nice "modern" art. You move on to some of the best portraiture work I have ever seen... Then you arrive at the Palace! Wow! This is world class tops! If there was one thing not to miss in Trieste; this is it!

The museum taught many unknown facts about the influence of Revoltella in the construction of the Suez canal, and showed the great importance of Trieste in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The "modern" art section should be walked through quickly and efficiently.

For those who like their modern art an interesting collection of late 19th up to mid-20th century Italian art. The building also has original furniture and decoration in extremely opulent style so a two in one. Always something to see eg fountain at foot of stairs and well worth a visit

The Revoltella residence is fascinating in its own right for the opulence of the surroundings, but the clincher for me was the excellent galleries of modern art. Well worth the visit - allow at least an hour, and probably two if - like me - you love to appreciate great art.
