This pallazo still has the family rooms ntact. My favorites were the library with beautifully carved wood decor and the optic room, not to be missed. In the far corner of the 2nd floor room is a built in lens to view the street, like a periscope. A similar, but different optiv view is installed on the next higher floor.... More

This museum in a former grand home is a must for anyone interested in the history of Trieste. It good to buy a combined ticket and then you can see all the sites and travel on the buses - you can get these from the Tourist office just off the main square.

This museum gives a glimpse into the life of wealthy Triestini in the mid 19th century. As such it is interesting, especially having read the imaginary descriptions in Jan Morris' excellent book on Trieste. However, the audio guide is pathetic, and often misleading as items it describes have been moved or removed. There is also a collection of 19th and... More

Very nice museum with an impressive exposition of contemporary art on the top floor and unexpectedly beautiful palace on the lower floors. We were pleasantly surprised with the place!

Disappointingly hard to find and then further disappointment once inside; poor direction, poor assistance from the staff and badly laid out. It should have been a great place, as the collection of old paintings is impressive but the Modern Art section is inadequate. It is also quite expensive for what you get!

This is a world heritage site... full points would have been the norm, had it not been for unfortunately unclear directions on the optional iPod guide pad. However, Museo Revoltella gives a fascinating look into the old time Austro-Hungarian / Italian splendour.

I visited mainly the historic part of fhe museum (the other part was re-arranged). You may have an impression of the life of rich Trieste citizens in the second half of XIX century with curious details (up to the lens system, predecessor of TV camera surveillance).

A good place to while away a couple of hours in Trieste, this compact, interesting museum was certainly worth a visit, As you will read elsewhere, it is part baronial mansion, part art gallery, and has a selection of bits and pieces that provide a very enjoyable browse. On our visit, there was an attempt to counterpoint the mansion rooms... More

The person who gave the historical contents was connected with the Suez Canal project,this wonderful house was the setting for some of Trieste's intriguing past. Added to it is an architectural gem that serves as a showcase for temporary exhibits. Presently the work of Jagoda Buic who is a Croation textile artist and set designer. Very impressive scale to building... More
