We toured this on our second day in St. Petersburg. Fascinating to see how the rich/non-royals lived. It is a beautifully preserved place. Make sure you get the ticket to allow you to take pictures. The only negative was the local docent who took off my head because I dared to take a picture in the anteroom to the theater. It had said "No Pictures in the Theatre". Since we weren't in the theater yet, I didn't think it was an issue. This gorgon was then going to report our tour guide and have her license taken away for allowing me to take a picture. The ironic thing was that when you went into the theater, there was no local guide...and everyone was taking pictures. "Ms. Large and In-Charge" was just wanting to throw her "considerable" weight around outside the theater.
