This is one of the finest museums in the world. I went mainly to see the Faberge eggs again however many of these were on loan to other exhibitions. That said, so many other exhibits are absolutely incredible from both an artistic and historical perspective....More

Worth an hour's visit as part of the overall Kremlin visit. Remember to get your tickets before rolling up to the gate, otherwise it's a trek back to the ticket office. Enjoyable, looking at the carriages, firearms, and ancient ornament too.

Make sure to visit this place. Buy ticket in advance and if you are foreigner you can buy tickets to Diamond Fund there. Audio guide is enough.

Wouldn't bother with it, if you're after faberge eggs, go to the Faberge egg museum in St Petersburg. The ones here are so crowded in with Chinese tourists you can't even see them.

We combined this with our tour of Red Square and the Kremlin. This should not take you more than one day. The armory is incredible. It makes you realize just how much wealth the Czars had during their long reign. I’ve seen the Crown Jewels...More

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.

You can do it by yourself and probably would be cheaper. €10 is about 650 rubles and Armoury ticket is 700. If you leave your ID card at the desk you get free audio guide in desirable language. Look on their website for... More
