“Impressive house turned into an impressive museum”
Review of Museo Revoltella

Museo Revoltella

Reviewed 28 June 2018

Until today we had never heard about Pasquale Revoltella. We visited his mansion close to the harbour and learnt a lot about his life in the 19th century. He was involved in many important ventures such as the realisation of the Suez Canal and the foundation of insurance companies still existing today. He devoted a lot of time to the creation of a large art collection and left his house as a museum. The museum gives a good impression of the grand style of the house in its furniture, sculptures and paintings. Information about the rooms and artifacts is given in both Italian and English. There are no less than 6 floors full of art, mostly 18th and 19th century Italian. Only the top floor has some modern 20th century art. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum.

The original home of Revoltella allows you to imagine life as it was in the 19th century in this mansion. The adjoining modern art museum extends to six floors and has amazing views from the sixth floor terrace. Definitely well worth a visit.

We stupidly only allowed an hour and a half to visit this museum. It is a magnificent space and with a terrific modern art collection, as well as some paintings concerning Trieste history. Not to mention (but I will) the fantastic views from the museum’s terraces. A very, very special place. Again, make sure to go if you visit Trieste. I might go back to Trieste just to visit this museum....! And thanks to the museum guard who gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation.

An art lover, I could have spent the whole day in this museum. It’s paintings are so lovely. The sculptures too grasped my attention. There are many rooms with furniture and antique mirrors. The library here is quite enchanting too.

Easy walking from the water (and parking areas) to this house that on the lower floors has antique furniture and more modern art on the upper floors. Not a "must see" but worth a little time. Free on the first Sunday of the month.
