This is a real treasure trove, in a palace so you get to see two things in one. We hadn't imagined that there would be anything of such good quality, or so large, in a town which is not a capital city, although of course Trieste has been a rich port throughout history. Originally the exhibits and paintings were for the 19th century, but it has been added to, including buying the building next door which has been gutted and is now a really modern exhibition space. The buildings now cover an entire block, and most of it is exhibition space, together with curator areas and education spaces (we saw a children's workshop, for example). There are now 350 paintings and sculptures distributed over 6 floors.
