The palace features archaeological, ethnographic, and numismatic collections. Walk through the fully restored ground floor, and see living rooms and receiving halls. Notice the original paintings, sculptures, dukes' weapons, and personal items. Collections include icons and religious items, handwritten books, and books printed before the 18th century. The palace is a part of a larger historical complex that features a chapel, a burial vault, a winter garden, a watchtower, and a mid-19th-century park.

A beautiful castle in the middle of a great park. Provides peak into Czarist and Belarussian history. more »
I visited the museum and the park in summer. The park is nice and have a lot of beautiful trees and fontaines. As for the museum it was not impressive. more »
The palace itself links this small city to the Great Imperial Russian time-line and was built by the same architects who has built in Russian capitals. Very few house items preserved, but you can feel the spirit.
A place to visit in all seasons. Nice palace situated in beautifully landscaped garden with its own streams, water bodies and overlooking the river. It was amazing to walk there in peak winter when the streams were frozen! The palace interiors are overwhelming to say the least.
Good has every thing u want.
A place not to miss. Beautifully restored interiors, 17 century palace museum. Guided tours.
Great place. Highly recommended for anyone who's visiting Gomel.
