    Decent museum with an odd combination of historic rooms and an art gallery
    Worth a visit. It’s a strange combination of palazzo with gorgeous rooms and furniture that then morphs into an art gallery which is all a little unexpected. However, having said that both are pretty good. The palazzo is very beautiful and is a period piece of great quality. The art gallery is very modern and has a lot of more modern to very modern sculpture and mostly 19th and early 20th century painting. At the top in the summer is a rooftop cafe sadly not open when we were there but we snuck out there and it has great views over the city and port. It’s not expensive is pretty central but at the eastern end of town and I would plan on around 2 hours for a decent visit plus coffee/drink stop. There is also plenty of other things to see nearby so worth the effort

    So much to discover and enjoy 🌞
    The museum is called after the house owner who gave his private luxury mansion (built in the second half of the 19th century) including plenty of interesting artefacts to the city of Triest. So, you can visit at least 2 parts (permanent exhibitions): • the mansion including furniture, paintings etc • museum of modern art And in July 23 also the "Miro temporary exhibition" . Staff was friendly and not on your back 😉 Great experience.

Odd combination of modern art and older art and rooms restored from a previous historical owner. The museum has an interesting mix of art. We saw the exhibition from Ligabue which was interesting. Not a lot of English artistic interpretations and explanations of art which is a shame.

A fabulous way to spend 90 mins - 2 hrs - history and beautiful rooms and furniture - then a tour through a plethora of modern art 🖼. 7 Euros is a very very fair outlay for a place worth preserving and lovely staff well worth employing - the art is great the historical rooms are magnificent .

Trieste has a number of interesting museums, most of them run by the municipality. And these bureaucrats, in their wisdom, chose to keep some of the most interesting ones like the James Joyce / Svevio Literary Museum as well as the history one closed during the high season in July (and by the way, Trieste is the only larger Italian city without a so-called "tourist card").

Fortunately, the Revoltella was open. Set in the magnificent palazzo of its late namesake, it offers not only interesting period exhibits but also a good depiction of what life was like for the very wealthy in 19th century Trieste. Pasquale Revoltella was not only a collector of art and beautiful objects but also an explorer and a successful entrepreneur who among others participated in the financing of the Suet Canal.

What more can you say about the Revoltella Palace Museum except that every art lover must come to see this masterpiece and feel and sit back with the past.
Many thanks to Baron Pasquale Revoltella for this legacy for the future.
Be sure to look back and fly into the past.

First get past the staff smoking in the doorway. Then the best you get from the man at the ticket desk is a glare and grunt. On trying to play the audio guide, having downloaded it to the phone, one discovers that you need a code. That is hidden at the side of the ticket desk. You have to go back to get that.
Lots of staff talking to each other, no help, no advice, no suggestions. We speak Italian but that did not help.
Once you get going the content is rather interesting although many of the modern things were not availed to see. We have no idea why. We were entirely put off by the atypical unfriendly staff. A disgrace, not in any way typical of Italy.

This was advertised as a “modern art museum”, which it does have on the upper 4-6 floors, but the first three are from the later 1800’s and stunningly beautiful. Mostly furnished and decorated, we really enjoyed visiting the property. We weren’t too interested in the modern art, but some people might be, and the upper galleries are very well lit and inviting.
