Castle Museums

Castle, symbol of the city, former seat of the Patriarch of Aquileia and the Venetian Lieutenant of the Homeland of Friuli, has been home to the Civic Museums since 1906. 
The ground floor houses the Museum of Risorgimento and the Archaeological Museum, both of which are the result of a careful museographic selection accompanied by multimedia aids. On the main floor is the renovated Gallery of Ancient Art with valuable art works from the 14th to the 19th century, including paintings by Carpaccio, Caravaggio and Tiepolo. On the third floor you can admire the new Friulian Museum of Photography, with 19th and 20th century images by major photographers working in Friuli, including Agricola, Pignat and Brisighelli. 
Do not miss the opportunity to visit the exhibition 'A cosmopolitan architect at home, Raimondo D'Aronco in Friuli', open until 8 January 2023.
