We were in a group tour of 15 or so people. It was a private palace with nice art collections. The private theater is magnificent. The oak room was also nice. Photographing is allowed with $3 pay. 1-2 hour is necessary.

this showed the decadence and opulence of its time and also where Rasputin was allegedly murdered , it was steeped in history and fascinating stories from its chequered past
