Gatchina Palace and Estate Museum

Anatoly Medved/TASS
Most countryside palace museums have special tours and quests for children. At Gatchina, children are given special carry-cases containing creative tasks and accessories to help complete them. There is also a special children’s lounge area, where they can spend time building castles and watching films about knights. A special programme is available for visually impaired children called “Sensation of the Palace”. Children visit four staterooms and while the tour guide tells them about the palace’s former owners and their lives here, the children can touch and feel copies of museum exhibits and leaf through the albums with information in Braille.

Ticket office 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
