  • You should book tickets on line for peak time visits as numbers are limited, but beware that you still have to exchange the on-line voucher for a ticket and that still means queuing up with everyone.....  more »
  • Remember to reserve this in advance otherwise you cannot go. I love this place, very historical and worth the visit, if you do not go here, I don't think you have visited Russia. So Go!  more »

  • I would say this is the best place to visit in Kremlin and in Moscow. The collections here are self explanatory and describes the luxurious living of Czars. This is basically a Museum, named as Armoury chamber, since it was an armoury chamber many years before. Be ready to witness huge waiting lines to get the tickets. Better book online or come 30mins early before the opening time to get the tickets
  • A classy museum! Major part of the collection comes from Russia but many interesting items are also from Persia, India, Turkey, Germany and Sweden.
  • Stunning Museum Take the time and enjoy the displays. You should not miss the museum while you are in the Kremlin grounds
  • 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
  • It is called as "Aruzeinnaya palata" in Russian. No photography allowed inside. Still I managed a few. A beautiful and well managed place with stuff from daily lives of Russian Czars displayed here. Their diamond encrusted clothes and armoury. Their carriages, personal weapons, silver ware, gifts and what not. A huge hit with tourists and Russians as well. Everything if valued must be worth several billion dollars. 1000 rubles ( 16 $) entry ticket. Includes digital guide, and museum curator too. A voyage through old times. !!!!! One of the pictures below posted by me is real Kremlin red bricks visible below tiles.
