We liked very much several holls inside palace, which have been restored recently, especially beautiful White Hall. Also, there is a huge ancient portrait of Count Sheremetev, also recentlyrestored. Besides these, there are a lot of interesting things.

Very beatiful museum in a fantastic place. A big enough variety of instruments and paintings. I stayed over a month in St. Petersburg and I visited as much museums and sisghtsights I could. This was the first time to face such a rude behaviour.

This is an optional stop. The palace is pretty but not up to the level of the Yusupov across town. The musical instruments were very average except the interesting group of mini-violins, which was unique. Otherwise better collections in big city museums elsewhere. The attendants...More
