Our guide (provided by Kensington Tours) made the experience of touring the Armory museum much more meaningful by explaining the history, culture and architecture during this tour. Highly recommend having a professional guide when touring Russia.

Don't be misled by the name. This is not just a collection of weapons and armour as you sometimes find in other museums. Much of the phenomenal wealth of the Czars is on show here - Faberge eggs, costumes, carriages etc. Gifts of all kinds...More

The collection gives a very broad range of Russian history with weapons and items from the history of the country and its development.

Spread over several floors this is well worth a visit and should come as part of a Kremlin tour. The gifts on display from foreign monarchs are amazing.

Within the Kremlin walls stands The Armoury, a truly wonderful museum containing many Russian works of art. The collection of Fabergé eggs alone is worth a visit but these are just a few of the treasures contained within. There is a cloakroom for coats, as...More

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

Yes, but subject to availability since they have a quota for each hour of the day. Also, the queues may be very long.
