  • It is a fascinating museum with a varied and imposing collection of imperial clothing, armoury, tableware gifted from different countries to the tsars. Don't miss the impressive Easter eggs from Fabergé and the fascinating scriptures with their impressive covers! Oh, and the Olympic set of plates that depict Neptune greco scenes.
  • This was a very fascinating museum. I was personally most impressed with the various eras of carriages and sleighs in the farthest room and marveled at the various suspension technologies. The displays of crowns, staffs, and thrones were also fascinating. There is a diverse collection of weaponry, and glorious Fabergé eggs. I recommend arranging a human tour guide in your language. There are free digital audio guides (1,500 ruble deposit - DONT risk leaving your passport) do not give the most interesting details. I would love to post pictures and such, however, none of that is allowed in Kremlin Museums.
  • Went to Aurmory Chamber of Kremlin mainly because of Faberge Eggs, however, I did not like the form of exhibition.. All 10 of them in one show case, not properly illuminated.. If you are interested in the Eggs, visit Faberge Museum in St. Petersburg
  • Overpriced for what it has to offer. Full of tourists. Remember to take your audio guide.
  • Fantastic museum. Definitely worth the price of admission.
