Interesting and impressive building full of history without the jostling crowds found in the other palaces. Very educational and gives a real insight into Russian history. Well worth a visit.
Very interesting palace. It is one of the smaller ones. But unlike many of the others this one has a more homely feel. To me the biggest highlight was the home theater and the library. Well worth the visit. Only 4 stars as only the main tour was available. So if you want to see where rasputin was killed you need to take one of the Russian options.
Nice to have audio guide of the palace. It is an interesting palace although it is rather small. My favourite room in the drawing room downstairs. For the Rasputin exhibition you need extra ticket to go inside. And bags are not allowed.
Decent museum. There are better ones though, so of you miss this it's ok.
A lovely palace with some beautifully decorated rooms, there is a very good audio guide available in multiple languages and unlike most audio guides this one doesn't drone on for too long or hinder your progress through the museum. The Yusupov palace was much quieter than some of the other palaces we visited which was a nice change as if you time it right you can avoid all the large cruise tour groups. Some areas were closed for refurbishment whilst we were there and the art gallery exhibit was still being finished however.
