This is in effect the private collection of a wealthy Russian, somewhat mystifyingly located in Germany. Admission of 18 euros is steep, especially considering that not so much of the display is actual Faberge jewelry, or the famous Easter eggs, but assorted medallions, small carvings, tzarist photos that are unexplained, and many items which aren't Faberge at all (but antique...

18 euros each for entry! Okay, you will see some amazing intricate work. However, the famous Faberge Eggs are in short supply. Museum does have a very helpful, English speaking guide though. I guess you can't visit Baden Baden without going to the museum but it isn't very large. Walk slowly and read all the info and you might be... More

If you're going to see the eggs you'll be disappointed, only a couple with nothing inside, but lots of other historic Russian items and knowledgeable docents.

If you do not already appreciate the work of Faberge or have read about the fine work of this artisan, don't complain about wasting your money on visiting this museum on your own or through a tour. For everyone else, it is worth every penny to see these works of art and more! The palace in which this private museum... More

I'm not a jewellery fan but this is brilliant and worth every Euro cent of the entry fee especially thinking about the value. Faberge made one off items that cost maybe the equivalent to $2M at the time and ceased in 1918 for obvious reasons. This pukka stuff has no connection to the current production so let us nail that... More

It's a fine museum but expensive €18 for what it offers. I guess it's because it's a private museum. You cannot take photos inside the museum which is disappointing but the collection is impressive. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They help with the translations to English since everything is either in German or Russian.

Of relatively minor interest, and with a hefty entrance fee, for addicts only. Conveniently located in the centre of town.

Nice collection but I honestly would skip this place. Not so special, and there is better ways to spend your money: the baths, coffee, etc...

Amazing art and service. Hard to find due to ambiguous mapping. After walking up hill on a very hot day and meeting some other people also enquiring about The Faberge Museum. The good news was that this museum is open on Mondays. We retraced our steps and eventually found it. It is near the centre. We got an excellent deal... More

Although a very small museum, it is packed with gems created by Faberge and the helpful staff are on hand to answer questions or to proffer interesting stories to enhance the visitor's understanding or appreciation of the displays. not cheap at 15 euros each bunt the museum is obviously seeking to recoup some of its considerable investment in Faberge artefacts...
