Palazzo della Pilotta is a complex of buildings, home to the Teatro Farnese and museums. It doesn't look like a palace from the outside but this designation is probably due to the immense size of the structure.

As my title goes, no, its inside didn't attract me as much as its outside. It seemed like an old and somewhat neglected Palazzo, would definitely not pay to enter and repeat a visit similar to many in Italy.
