Faberge Museum, St. Petersburg

(4.6/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • At the entrance you will have lockers to put your (free) business and overshoes to take to the locker room. Mount and start the tour. Without audio guide, you will have books in English in each room for you explain the different exposed elements. A floor to see, 10 eggs and many other interesting pieces. 450 roubles the entrance and 150 for the audio guide. A tour guide it's 600 but to do with schedules of departure posted at the ticket office. A little more than two hours will be required. It is recommended!

  • Amazing beauty products are represented in this museum. Definitely a place you should visit. In the Museum there is a decent gift shop

  • This is a visit not to be missed. The pieces are wonderful, full of history. The Museum allows photos. It's not a great Museum, so it is possible a good visit in 1:00.

  • Highly recommended to visit if you want to as much as begin to understand how rich and ostentatious the imperial family was. The master craft required to create these mechanical wonders... You'll be amazed and you will learn quite a bit of history. Strongly recommend getting a audio guide.
  • As a private museum, it has everything you need to enter and discover Fabergé's world ! Exceptional exhibitions of his world famous eggs, and plenty of details thanks to the audioguide. Recommended !
  • I really enjoyed the exibition in Faberge museum. Before the visit, I did not know much about the Eggs but after visiting the musem, the Eggs became one of my favorite jewels.
  • Interesting villa, on the same level as Yusupof Palace, but smaller. The collection of Faberge Eggs is limited, but considering that most of those eggs are not in Russia anymore I guess it's ok. A visit that can be done after the main attractions have all been hit.
  • 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.
