Other highlights include a pair of Peter the Great's boots, numerous royal carriages and sledges, and a lavish throne studded with over 800 diamonds. Be sure to visit the upstairs galleries, which contain a vast collection of silver artworks produced between the 12th and 17th centuries, as well as 10 world-famous Easter eggs made by celebrated jeweler Faberge.

  • Lots of Russians stuff in display like clothing and carriages etc not an armory as the name suggests. Worth s visit if you have the time and are interested in that sort of stuff.

  • Born in Moscow, I haven’t been here and this was my dream to visit the Armory chamber. What an impressive and magical place with so much history.

  • Definitely worth a visit. Great collection of Russian royal attributes. Deep dive into pre Revolutionary Russia. Great audio guides in English 👍
  • A very interesting and thought provoking look into a different age and a glimpse into a world of splendor and privilege. Well worth a visit, lots to see, start early.
  • You may skip this one if you wish. But otherwise it’s very beautiful from inside and will easily take 2/3 hours to see in its entirety
  • Fantastic museum. Ticket cost 1000 rubles. 100%.worth the money. Inside you can see collection of gold and silver jewellery , arms and weapons, dresses, carriages, religious items.For diamond found is separate ticket 500r
  • Considering the ticket fare, I found the exhibition to be a bit small. Nice collection of treasuries though. Free audio guide is a plus. Negative point is that you are not allowed to take pictures inside. Be smart and reserve your ticket for a specific time slot a few days in advance via the internet, the queue at the ticket office was long.
