Faberge Museum, St. Petersburg

4.7
View the Imperial Easter eggs created for the last two Russian emperors, Alexander III and Nicholas II, at Faberge Museum. Devoted to the creative work of the great Russian jeweler Carl Faberge, this privately owned museum was founded to repatriate lost cultural valuables to Russia, and features approximately 4,000 works of decorative applied and fine arts, including gold and silver items, paintings, porcelain, and bronze. Much of the collection belonged to the royal family and other members of the monarchist courts of Europe. Guided tours last about an hour and are offered in Russian and English, although English tours are limited so be sure to reserve in advance through the website, or call the museum directly. You can explore the museum independently during specific hours, otherwise you must join a guided tour to view the exhibits. Note that photography is not permitted inside the museum. Plan a trip to St. Petersburg easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Legends of Montparnasse. Thank you for the interesting Museum exhibition, the idea of fotozony for valentines day and competition, which is very sad for a lot of people, noisy, hampered by immersion in a painting

  • No regret, must visit. Small and easy to tour around the whole museum. Lots of good pieces besides Eggs! With the museum ticket get discount for the hop on hop off cruise tour right outside!
  • Located in the very center of the city, easy to get by bus or metro. You can join an excursion group with the guide, or take audio guide or walk around and enjoy the masterpiece yourself. Museum contains several big rooms where you can see different pieces of art made of gold, silver, enamel. One room contains orthodox icons. Museum is not crowded in late autumn - winter period. Good that it's open till late evening (6 PM) even on Sundays. Security is at good level, you will be requested to pass through the scanner at the entrance (like in airports)
  • If you love Faberge Eggs, then you must come here. There is a collection of the original eggs on display plus some information about the history and maker. It's beautiful. It is fairly new, I think it only just opened when I visited in Oct 2017.
  • We doubted if it was worth taking the time to go here but so glad we did it. Apart from the collection, the palace it's housed in is worth visiting
  • It was actually very disappointing. It was smaller than I was expecting and there were just a few Faberge eggs. It's very nice though, just not as many eggs.
