Here you'll find Faberge eggs, Catherine the Great's diamonds and many gowns. You'll also discover the Imperial Carriages which are studded with precious stones and gold.

An amazing collection, but in many respects unpleasant. An overwhelming focus on opulent gifts between royals. I did have a limited respect for the military armor (but why the suit for a child?) and the series of carriages on the first floor.

We went for a guided tour of the Armoury and it was better then expectations, seeing the Russian crown jewel (crowns) was great, the exhibit of royal coaches was fascinating and the section that has jewels for the royal horses is incredible

So many special treasures. The carriage collection is especially stunning. Totally OTT ! Everything is on a grand scale. Love the costumes of Catherine the Great, the crowns of the tsars, the Faberge eggs.

We were really "gobsmacked" by this museum. From Faberge eggs to Catherine the Great's weddding dress, troikas, carriages, armour and amazing gifts from other nations. We would absolutely recommend this place

This museum has all sorts of gold and silver state gifts, elaborate period clothing and a spectacular collection of fancy coaches. Well worth a visit.

The Russians really have put together amazing displays of artefacts from their rich and diverse history. So much thought and work has gone into these.

I'm not usually into armour, but in addition to armour, this museum also has a huge collection of royal jewels and artifacts. Well worth the visit and a must see at the Kremlin!

The armoury is an amazing building. The contents vary from religious objects, weapons and armoury, costumes and the most amazing carriages. I've never seen so many jewels in one place....it's a feast for the eyes. Get to the ticket office early though and be prepared...More

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

Yes, but subject to availability since they have a quota for each hour of the day. Also, the queues may be very long.

Just buy your ticket when you arrive..there isn't a line. Ask your hotel the best way to arrive.

You can do it by yourself and probably would be cheaper. €10 is about 650 rubles and Armoury ticket is 700. If you leave your ID card at the desk you get free audio guide in desirable language. Look on their website for... More
