I loved this place so much! It's unique. The exclusivity of the Faberge collection acquired by the Link of Times foundation also comes from the fact that this collection represents all of the areas the House of Faberge specialized in: objects of fantasy of all...More

As I remember it is inside of Shuvalov`s palace, which was renovated 2-3 years ago, so it looks outstanding on each of your step. How small those eggs are and how did they made them?!

This thoughtfully restored museum building is a prime example of a spacious palace located in the congested heart of St Petersburg. It's got eggs, too, but most of the exhibition space is taken up with all manner of artefacts, jewelled and enamelled, made for purposes...More

Collection of treasures by the goldsmith masters of Faberge (many of them of Finnish origin). We came independently but noticed some visitors were accompanied by a professional guide: you could certainly delve into the intricate details of the pieces better that way. There are no...More

Magnificent collection of jewelry pieces produced by the famous jeweler Carl Faberge. Rather central location and very close to our hotel we were impressed with the pieces displayed specially the famous eggs

Amazing and wonderfully clever eggs beautifully displayed and lit. Practically empty in January! A must!

Going here after seeing the Hermitage wouldn't add much. It is nice, nice halls, nice jewelry, nice temporary exhibition of post-impressionists. Nice to visit, but can be skipped as well. Entrance price is somewhat expensive compared to other places.

Hello, on entering the museum they ask you to put plastic covers over your shoes so they are fairly protective of their flooring. The entry exit is separate but only has a few stairs. I found the staff extremely helpful so... More

The museum itself is in the city center. It is very close to the Nevsky prospect (Nevsky avenue) and the closest metro station is Nevsky prospect/Gostiniy Dvor, which is within 5 min walk
