The Palace was closed for many years due to renovations but it was well worth it, it's a beautiful building, full of history, with gorgeous rooms and really nice museums (some are themed exhibitions that change periodically). Do visit the clock tower as well!

Palace contains museums and art gallery. The building is far more interesting than the contents of the museum displays.
