This free museum (and that in itself is remarkable) is a former palazzo complete with beautiful furnishings, including, as others have said, the kitchen, but also lots of remarkably preserved furniture. There are also a handful of glorious art works by Tiepolo and Carpaccio, and...More

After completing the European Peace Walk from Vienna to Trieste I came across the Civico Museo Sartorio. The guide was wonderful and spoke excellent English. The building was mostly set up as a period piece with beautiful furnishings which included, my highlight, the kitchen. Such...More

What a wonderful surprise! One can only visit the museum with a guide. This is because they don't have enough personnel to keep an eye on all the rooms. So they organize guided visits every one hour and fifteen minutes. The guide was very knowledgeable...More

We were recieved shortly (an hour) before closing time and given an intelligent, coherent and responsive guided tour. The guide was clearly an academic rather than a scripted automaton. The collection is fantastically rich. Generally I hate guided tours. This one was highly satisfactory. I...More

Extensive art collection , modern to Renaissance. The Renaissance collection is worth the admission alone! An old elegant home houses this museum, and the living rooms have been beautifully restored. The 19th century kitchen was intact, with the stoves and cookware. Very unusual. Personal guides...More

I had the museum virtually to myself and was able to wander from room to room enjoying beautiful paintings and pictures, tapestries, furniture, china and room decorations. Very good helpful notes to most rooms in English.
