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.

  • You should definitely visit the Faberge Museum. eye pleasing, there is much to admire, and tired, almost every room has glass benches in the style of Faberge.

  • Grandiosely, beautifully, elegantly. Day visit only with guided tours (recruited at the time), in the evening on your own. In the first Hall (early examination) can take a directory (per box, white book) and a brief description of the exhibits and halls (then reinserted). At the entrance you will see guards with persons the protection of particularly important object. The private museum, but State personnel (no smiles at the front desk where to purchase tickets) and indifference. But this is offset by the content of the Museum. The collection is impressive. And it's not just the Faberge eggs. Interior decorations and paintings. Else: raise your head and look at the ceiling (for beauty). Briefly: visit worth it.

  • What you will see in the Faberge just in not believing that you are! Golden eggs, objects, paintings adorn the Museum that opened its doors nearly three years ago! Strict security measures and only with tour guide and group was Mesa!

  • The Faberge eggs are spectacular. It's possible to visit the museum in the evenings up until 9pm and tour on your own using an audio guide which is very informative and comes in most languages. In addition to the eggs there are also a number of ornate items produced by the house of Faberge such as silverware, jewellery boxes and cigarette cases.
  • This was a beautiful museum. Individual tours are held between 6:00PM and 8:45PM. Reservations are needed for groups of 15 or more. There was one English tour available during mid day when we went on a Monday and there maybe more English guided tours during the weekends. We rented an audio guide in English like most russian museums to tell you more about the pieces in exihibit. There are nine easter imperial eggs on exhibit here, the only other museum in the world with more eggs is the moscow armory.
  • Open late, perfect for an evening visit. Beautiful eggs and interesting background.
  • Absolutely stunning rooms and objects of desire. Highly recommend a visit. Individual's are allowed to tour from 6pm to 8:45pm.
  • Many beautiful items. Good audio guide. Only lets people in with a tour, so we had to join a Russian tour
