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.

  • This was a great Museum with wonderful Faberge eggs of different sizes and wonderful colours. You were not allowed to take photos, but wish we had more time in there.  more »
  • Splendid! In addition to the famous eggs, you will find many valuable and all objects more sumptuous than the other! Not to be missed.

  • The staff were reallyniceand attentive. We needed a wheelchair for my grandmother and they were very helpful. The museum itself is nice, but nothing more.
  • It is a beautiful exhibit of truly unique masterpieces. The museum staff were helpful despite the language barrier. The toilets by the lockers were thoroughly disgusting though.
  • Nice city palace... Impressive Egg collection. Small but beautiful
  • Amazing! Go to see the Imperial eggs but you'll spend as much time looking at the equally beautiful, but less important "regular" items. Absolutely wonderful!
  • Great museum. There are many dinnerware inside. Faberge eggs looks also interesting.
