  • Nice place to learn about the life of royals. How were very limited viewing experience. All the rooms have brokers placed so you have to crank your neck to look in. A lot if the rooms were closed which was kind of disappointing. Air conditioning wasn't working in some places
  • Many areas are blocked/restricted... so tour only certain parts of ground & 1st floor. .Good to go & view when you are passing by; not worth to purposely go for a visit..&.don't expect grand architecture/furnishing like overseas palace.
