The choices made to transform the collection of Count Revoltella in a museum of modern art with a touch of contemporary are decidedly bold. Bravo! I recommend starting from the top floor and down from floor to floor, enjoying a pop up of contemporary works.

Great museum - you get to visit the Barone fully restored mansion and the extensive painting collections in the new, wonderfully built wing, done by Carlo Scarpa.

I can t say I am the biggest lover of art in the world or even know much about artists apart knowing the obvious ones, but I quite liked this place. Its not too big and not too small. It has a nice mixture of those portraits that grand people seemed to be fond of, the ones where no one... More

Went to Museo Revoltella on the last day of my weekend. Very interesting - combination of an art gallery and a period house. Definitely worth a visit

This city museum was founded in 1872 and now spills into two neighbouring buildings. Baron Revoltella's original mid-19th-century house is brimming with chandeliers, ornate gilded plasterwork and flamboyant silk wallpaper. The modern Palazzo Brunner has an interesting collection of 19th- and 20th-century works by Triestine artists, including some arresting early-20th-century portraits and busts. There's also a pretty rooftop cafe and... More

A rambling museum near the water. There is so much art that it's hard to focus. It's an Interesting combo of an old palazzo and a new building by Carlo Scarpa. Worth it for architects buffs. Be sure to make it to the roof terrace and the top floor with the most Modern art.

The ancient elegant palace where the Museo Revoltella is located is worth to be seen just outside, located close to the sea side in an historical quarters of Trieste. In the area, there are plenty of good restaurant, and a long pedestrian path that crosses most of the best sightseeing in town. When entering, you will realized that two worlds... More

The perfect rainy day activity in Mestre. There is plenty of lesser-known 20th Century art that I had never come across and was of very high quality. I spent all day, having a break for lunch, sketching here. In particular the spaces designed by Carlo Scarpa are magnificent, with interesting half-levels that take you through a journey to the roof... More

It is true the range of art is somewhat narrow - mostly early 20th century Italian. However, I found it to be absolutely lovely and am really glad that I went. It is definitely worth seeing and will not take a great deal of time.

From the brochure we thought we could knock this off in half an hour - we were wrong! This is a museum in two halves. One is the original house, with original decor and furniture. The other is the house next door which has been modernised and has an amazing art and sculpture collection. Very worth a visit - but... More
