We only spent 2 hours there as we had to go visit the other tourist attraction but it is easily possibly to spend the entire day. Tickets are now 30 Lera but there is so much to see when inside.
As mentioned by others, this place is more a museum than a palace. They have fantastic artefacts and beautiful grounds. Really worth taking the entire day out and spending it in the palace and it's grounds. Cannot think of a better way to spend a summers day.
The queues for the ticket desk was horrendous, probably 45 mins or longer. However, no one seems to use the self service ticket machines! They are to the left of the massive queue. You can buy the museum passes as well as tickets to the palace from the machine using cash or card. We used the machines and it took 2 minutes.
