You have to book ahead for this and it is best to have a guide. Shop around as guides can be very expensive...I am not sure why?

You need to book for a specific time but make the effort. This museum houses treasures from the Tsars including gold, jewellery, clothing and thrones. Gifts from foreign countries are on display along side Faberge eggs. Of course no museum is complete without an excellent...More

The Armoury was included in our whirl wind tour of Moscow. I am not a museum type but I was very, very impressed as our guide made each exhibition come to life with the history behind it. Well worth it if you have a guide.

Of all the places I visited in Moscow this was the one that I enjoyed the most. It showcases many of the treasures from the Czar's times--gold, silver, decadence galore. Getting a ticket for entrance in the summer is a bit tricky. I got in...More

Perhaps this type of historical museum isn't for everyone but I really enjoyed it. I felt that many of the exhibits were quite unusual and were certainly things that I had not seen elsewhere. I particularly liked seeing the historical clothes that the nobility wore,...More

There are many treasures displayed inside this museum including golden carriages and Faberge eggs. Despite that you are not allowed to take photos inside the rooms, you would not be disappointed to stroll around every corner of the museum to look at the splendid displays...More

The armoury had a lot of good exhibits. The tickets are allotted with specific times. A ticket gains access for 1.5 hours. If you leave and miss your time that's it. The tickets are bought from two specific booths. The queues are very large and...More

For me this was definitely one of disappointments in Moscow. Huge exhibition of silver, china, etc. I was tired after couple of minutes. If you are not interested in that kind of stuff, I'd recommend seeing something different.

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

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

The armoury is definitely worth a solo visit, and, in my opinion, there is no need of a proper guide, since the audio guide is fine enough. As for the Fabergé Eggs, I recall that there were just a couple, maybe three of... More
