Beautiful, interesting and varied objects to view, within some beautiful rooms, and overall just all a bit small & limited?

The Faberge Museum is a little Gem that's a must while visiting St. Petersburg. It has the largest collection (to my knowledge) of Faberge Eggs and other masterpieces crafted by Karl Faberge.

The museum is relatively small but has an excellent collection - of course the famous faberge eggs, but also many small items like jewelry, boxes, silverware etc., really outstanding! I highly recommend to visit this gem!

Small museum focused not only on eggs but other works by Faberge and similar jewellers. Very beautiful, well worth it!

Of course the exhibition and artefacts presented were beautiful. However, the audio guide provided rather flat information, basically just a list of facts, names and materials used. I would much preferred some insight into the stories behind the creations. As it stands I retained zero information, but came out with a lot of lovely photos. And I should mention the entry price was more than reasonable.

This is a world class museum set in the very center of St. Pet. When walking the main Nevsky prospekt turn left when you reach the Fontanka canal.
Mostly we came for the world famous eggs, but were overwhelmed with other art pieces.
There are only 9 eggs left and displayed that were made for the last two tsars (Alexander III and Nicholai II) - all others are in private collections. They occupy one room, while in all others are amazing art pieces (jewelry, silverware, paintings, etc...) made for aristocracy by Mr. Faberge and other eminent Russian artists.
The museum is open till late (9 and 10 PM) so it's very convenient as you can visit other attractions beforehand that have shorter working hours. Count on around 2 hrs for a visit.

All on one level in a gorgeous mansion on a side street off nevsky, this is a great place to spend a few hours.
There are small tours going through but not the swamped feeling we had at other attractions.
The craftsmanship and the history behind the pieces is amazing, giving a glimpse of grand lives in a past era.
The is a good gift shop on the lower level with lots of books, jewellery etc to buy. A good place to buy some faberge jewellery or ornaments that are good quality and not rip offs.

This is not just a jewellery tour. The Faberge museum is a lesson in Russian history. I missed seeing this on my first trip to the city in 2018, but on my second trip last year I was delighted to note that our group leader had budgeted two hours for this wonderful place. True, if you don't get excited by history, and by small historical objects, you should give this a miss, but you may not have a choice if you are on a group tour. If you do this on your own, PLEASE GET AN AUDIO GUIDE! It is an absolute must, well worth the extra cost. We had a wonderful guide, so we got great explanations of the important pieces. There are wonderful stories behind many of the pieces. Photos freely allowed, and some of the pieces are simply stunning. It is not all Faberge eggs, many of the pieces are small masterpieces of miniaturisation of everyday objects! One word of caution: it can be crowded, so those with a stroller may find negotiating the narrow spaces a bit difficult!

Visited on our second trip to this city as it wasn't open when we first came. We were in town for 2 days only on a cruise and had the option of a "St Petersburg On Your Own" trip which saved us from getting tourist visas and meant we could visit at our own pace as long as we made it back to the drop off point by a certain time. Easy to find and amazing exhibits, lots to see but a bit confusing upstairs getting from one room to the other across the landing- we almost missed a chunk of the museum and staff not always great with English. Very glad we came without a tour group as we saw them being whisked from one exhibit to another at whistle-stop pace, we were able to take our time, read all about the exhibits and listen to the audio guides which had loads of info about the pieces and were all numbered and easy to follow. We could also view pieces from all angles without a crowd blocking the view of the small items. Really enjoyed this, learnt a lot, and it wasn't expensive.
