Awesome learning more about the family. This is a hidden gem in St Pete & definitely worth the visit. Good to have audio guide as well. :)

Rasputin nearly died here, which was pretty cray. He was poisoned and shot and only died when they chucked him in the river!!! So, maybe go see the river instead. The general palace audioguide is extremely average. Would advise learning the entirety of Russian to let you go round on the Russian Tour.

We visited this place for a tour across the rooms. Great museum an amazing piece of Russian histroy. Be aware, this place provides only tours and you are not allowed to wonder around without the tour, so check the timings for tours before arriving.

Visited here with my wife and we were both very impressed and felt it was worth making the effort to visit, bearing in mind we only had two days in St Petersburg with so much to see. The palace was huge with various themed rooms e.g. The green room, the ballroom, the mirrored room, the blue room etc. You get... More

The palace is very beautiful and full of luxury. There are more than 28 rooms on 2 floors and each room is unique. Most of all I liked the Moroccan room. It is possible to visit without excursion. Just take audio guide at the entrance. It is really good and will help you to learn more about the place and... More

After travelling about 10 times to St Petersburg I wanted to see a real palace style luxury. Visiting Yusupov Palace didn't disappoint me as it was all I expected and even more! The renovations done in the palace are very good and the luxurious life of the Yusupov family can still be senced when observing all the rooms. The audio... More

Not just a lavish palace museum but also the site of Rasputin's murder! But note that the Palace and Rasputin's basement are separately run. Tours into the doomed cellar are open to the public after 6pm and tickets are separate. Worth checking it out!

Another amazing well-preserved but not crowded palace. Has some uniquely decorated interiors. Unfortunatelly, some rooms are accessed only on separate tickets, which are rather expensive - compared to main exhibit, use visit much less for are much highly price. There is a free for entry palace garden, too.

This is one of the most beautiful and the most interesting museums of St. Petersburg, which kept own collections and apartments in its original form. For lovers of art it will be interesting to admire a fine collection of paintings by Russian and foreign artists, as well as the wonderful interior of the palace. In the palace there are hold...
