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.

Although not as impressive as most art museums in Italy it is remarkably well done. It is a real pleasure to walk around this very nice villa in the center of Trieste and discover the paintings in a historical order. At the top on the terrace there is a nice view of the city.

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!
