Varied collection, limited (English) explanation. Relatively expensive.

An interesting collection of Faberge and other Jewelry & gold artefacts. Regrettably there is almost zero English (or French/ Spanish/ mandarin) explanation and indeed even for... read more

The museum is very small and very expensive at 18 euros for an adult admission. It is hot inside in summer, as only part of it is air conditioned. The limited explanations were written in German only and there were no audio guides in English or other languages. Not worth the time or the money.

Poor value for money. We enjoyed the temporary exhibition (pre-colombian gold) more than the actual permanent Faberge section. Guests are not allowed to take pictures, or even keep their cameras with them during a visit. Visiting the Baden-Baden rose gardens in our view was a better deal.

Dropped on this small Museum almost by accident whilst visiting Baden Baden and wondered round with just a handful of people. It turned out to be the absolute highlight of the visit being the largest collection of Faberge outside Russia in the world. For anyone who has any interest in craftsmanship this is a must see experience. You occasionally see... More

An interesting collection of Faberge and other Jewelry & gold artefacts. Regrettably there is almost zero English (or French/ Spanish/ mandarin) explanation and indeed even for German speakers explanation is limited although there was a German speaking guide who explained some of the key pieces if requested - Russian is clearly the norm in Baden Baden !

We visited here on a recent trip to Baden Baden and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it is small, the collection of items is incredible. In addition to some very beautiful Faberge objects (including at least 2 eggs, one of which was not even known of until this Russian collector displayed it), there is an amazing collection of other gold objects...

The Faberge Museum is a reason all by itself to visit Baden Bade. There is an extensive collection of Faberge items as well as items from the same time period. The items were unbelievable beautiful. There is also a growing collection of early Incan artifacts. The docent who guided us was very knowledgeable and made the visit special.

Apart from the need to visit such a unique museum, which can not possibly disappoint any traveller, I found our hostess (who was really just a 'watcher)' so helpful in explaining the fabulous items on display but also so knowledgeable in answering our endless questions. She is a credit to the business and a fine ambassador for the Museum. The... More

The museum holds some really beutiful art objects, don't get me wrong. But since this is a rating of the museum - I find that the entrance price of 18 Euro is not justified in any way. For comparison - entrance to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is "only" 14 Euro and you can spend there a whole day without... More

This museum shows a private collectors collection which is impressive considering the number of pieces shown. There is a Russian lady curator who explains the history very clearly

Quite pricy, but it was a lovely surprise for us - there's only a few eggs but there are a lot of other stunning beautiful pieces. There was a walking guide who I feel really made it for us, giving us a lot of detail on why they were there, where they came from and often - how much it... More
