Part baronial mansion, part art gallery, City Museum Revoltella is home mostly to 19th-century paintings and sculptures. This historic neo-Renaissance building was home to Baron Pasquale Revoltella, and its three floors still express the elegance and wealth of its owner. Acquired by the city of Trieste following the baron's death in 1872, the museum was expanded to the adjacent buildings in order to offer additional exhibition spaces. Start by exploring the luxurious residence's many rooms and all the works, furniture, and books they contained. Then, move on to the modern exhibits to see the approximately 350 paintings and sculptures on display. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Trieste holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the City Museum Revoltella and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A nice visit to the splendor of Trieste's past. A nice house museum. Also attached is the associated art museum. Walk over even if you don't go inside. It at the far end of the pedestrian way that cuts through the city from Grand Canal to the marina/ Riva.
  • Very beautiful building with amazing sculptures. Noone told us there was an English app even though we were clearly tourists so we walked around the museum with very minimum English information. So minus one star for customer service.
