01. Grand Staircase

The Grand Staircase, flanked by a sculpture gallery, was constructed in the 1840s by Nikolai Efimov where the main passage once stood. Years later, the architect Rudolph Berngard built the exquisite decorative stucco dome over the staircase.

02. Knight’s Hall

Military-themed works of art and applied art. The military theme links Karl Piratsky and Pyotr Balashov’s watercolors and the porcelain and silver items on display. The Knight’s Hall is named after the frieze on its walls, which depicts a medieval jousting tournament.

03. Red Room

Russian silver. The Red Room is dedicated to Russian works produced in silver between the 18th and early 20th centuries. On display are spectacular pieces from the best firms in St. Petersburg (C. Fabergé, P. Sazikov, Nichols and Plinke, the Grachev Brothers and Tigelshtein), all of which had the distinction of being official suppliers for the imperial court.

04. Blue Room

Fabergé Easter Eggs. The palace’s central parlor features the Imperial Easter Eggs made for the last of the Romanovs. These remarkable works each have their own unique story and made the Fabergé brand a household name all over the world.

05. Gold Room

Gifts from the Tsars, objets de fantaisie made by the House of Fabergé and jeweled boxes. A significant portion of the items on display in the Gold Room are associated with the Romanov dynasty and their relatives abroad. Of particular note are the objets de fantaisie made by the Fabergé firm’s artisans, as well as the golden boxes with portraits of the Russian emperors.

06. Anteroom

Jewelry, miscellaneous small items, accessories and clocks. The anteroom contains a collection of household items once owned by the wealthy and which demonstrate the rich color palette of guilloché enamel, as well as jewelry – the least-preserved items of the Fabergé legacy.

Today, the Exhibition Room is home to stone carvings made by the House of Fabergé and paintings by 19th-century Russian artists.

09. Gothic Hall

Russian and European painting from the turn of the 20th century. The Upper Dining Room features paintings by Russian and French masters from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
