I know the Grand duke George Mikhailovich lived there. You can have more details on the time spent in this palace in "Not all vanity", by baroness de Stoeckle. It´s nowadays in very bad shape, with a library in the former ballroom and so on...Your possibilities to see the interiors depend entirely on the mood of the person you find in the vestibule....as always in Russia. The palace was huge, a real city, with several courtyards and two facades, on the Neva and the Millionnaya. The grand duke´s children used to go on bycicle from one room to the other!

It was owned by Nicholas Mikhailovich-Bimbo-after his father's death, and several of his family-Serge Mikhailovich, George Mikhailovich-lived there when in the capital.  Once, purely on a whim, I went through the archway from the Millionnaya and sort negotiated my way in to see a bit of it, though not very much, unfortunately-I've love to see more, and floorplans, too.

The present Russian Museum is situated in the neoclassical Michael Palace, built by Carlo Rossi for Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, son of Emperor Paul; it faced onto Michael Square, just off the Nevsky Prospekt.  The Novo-Mikhailovsky Palace is at No. 18 Palace Embankment on the Neva and was built by architect Andrei Stackenschneider between 1857-1861, in the heavy, Italianate-style Stackenschneider favored, for Grand Duke Michael Nikolaievich.

To me, the Michaels Palace, the russian museum, would have been a much more appropriate place for the winter palace as it would have been set in gardens and would not have opened up onto the street. No wonder Alix thought the place impersonal and refused to live there full time.

Even the future Edward VII said that he found the winter palace strange as it only had a small garden and opened up onto the street.

The imperial bedroom, Nicholas´rooms and Alexandra´s boudoir looked all to the enclosed garden. Only the Empress´ corner drawing room(two windows) and the silver and White drawing rooms looked to the Palace Embarkment.

Thanks to SVETABEL,

I found this site about the Novo Mikhajlovskij Dvorets; there are interesting photos (even if small) and there would be a long description but it is in russian. Is there anyone who could translate it (or part of it) for those of us, me included, who don not konw Russian?

The first picture is labeled as the Grand Salon and overlooks the Neva.

The second picture is the Grand Ballroom

The last picture with the knotted columns is the former Private Chapel.

Great photos! I love architecture and seen the interior of these palaces and the detailed work all over is quite a visual experience.

I agree, the original photos are too pricey, thank heavens for scanners and the internet  ::)

I noticed the confusion on the two Michael palaces.

The Michael Palace was built for Grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich and is now the Russian Museum at Arts Square (on Inzhenernay Street). It was built by Carlo Rossi in 1819-1825 and the plans for its restoration are posted above.

The New Michael Place is at Palace Quay, 18 was built in 1857-1861 by A.I.Stackenschneider's for Grand Duke  Mikhail Nikolaevich and I think it became the "House of Scientists" during the soviet era.
