In 1906 the castle became a museum and today it is home to the Civic Museums; it contains the Gallery of Ancient Art, the Archeological Museum, Numismatic cabinet, an art library, a photo-library and a rich photographic archive of historic and artistic subject matters.
The palace rooms often host temporary exhibitions.
The Museum boasts a heritage of over 4000 works of art: paintings, drawings and sculpture, from the mid 1800s until today. On display: the important collection of Italian art from the 1900s donated by Maria Luisa Astaldi (De Chirico, Savinio, Severini, Sironi, Campigli, Pirandello...), the FRIAM Collection (De Kooning, Andre, Sol LeWitt...), and works of Afro, Dino e Mirko Basaldella.
Palazzo Giacomelli in via Grazzano is home to the new Ethnological Museum of Friuli. Its modern displays bring out collections to the public that have long been inaccessible, as well as new pieces from the recent acquisition of the “Ciceri Collection”.
Palazzo Morpurgo contains the Gallerie del Progetto with the archives of architecture and design. It hosts exhibitions, especially those of the design in Friuli. The permanent collections, most of which were formed from donations, include the archives of the architects Raimondo D'Aronco, Ottorino Aloisio, Pietro Zanini, Marcello D'Olivo, Angelo Masieri, Giovanni Santi and, for design, the archive of Electrolux Zanussi.
The Friuli Museum of Natural History contains thousands of examples and finding in Botany, Mineralogy, Paleontology, Paleo-ethnology, Zoology and Entomology, making up an extraordinary resource for the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The museum is temporarily closed to the public.
The museum contains paintings, works in gold, wood sculptures (13th – 18th centuries) and a collection of devotional painted glass. The building, which was the old seat of the patriarchy, is also important for works of Giambattista Tiepolo.
The Cathedral Museum of Udine is dedicated to the Patriarch Blessed Bertrando di Saint Geniès (1265-1350), a figure of political and ecclesiastical importance who made significant contributions during his rule (1334-1350). The museum contains a significant patrimony of the history, culture and art of the patriarchate of Aquileia during the age of Blessed Bertrando, but is also a “high” expression of the Christian faith of the Mother Church of Aquileia.
