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.

  • Splendid! In addition to the famous eggs, you will find many valuable and all objects more sumptuous than the other! Not to be missed.

  • 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)
  • Museum was not big. Historical building fine faberge things and some paintings. I was a bit piste off with staff. I was purchasing 3 adult and one kid tickets. And they didn’t sold me child ticket until I drought kid from changing room for them to see that I am not cheating. The difference in price was not much and they check tickets on the entry anyway.
  • 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!
  • The building and the Faberge works are elegant and breathtaking. We didn't care for the Dali art display. This is a must visit if you're in St Petersburg
  • A must see when visiting St Petersburg. Such beautiful craftsmanship and such a big display.

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
