Advice for your visit

Free bags deposit

Free bags deposit

Your group can leave their belongings at bag deposit area in the Entrance B before the visit. We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time of your visit in the low season, and 30 minutes early in high season, to deposit your bags.
During the Palace visit, make sure that no child leaves any personal belongings unattented, even just for few minutes.

Identify the reception and surveillance officers

Identify the reception and surveillance officers

Surveillance officers are present to help and inform you. These officers can be identified by the badges they wear and can be found all along the tour itinerary (in the courtyard, in the gardens, and the museum entrances and exits). If a child gets lost, he/she can directly go to them. These officers will immediately take care of him/her and will take all measures to find the group leaders. Likewise, a group leader can also ask these officers for help if they lose a child.
