When I saw we were going to visit the Kremlin Armoury, I was expecting to see tanks and missile launchers! I couldn't have been more happily surprised to find this is a complete treasure trove. There were fabulous thrones, carriages and sleighs, crowns and jewellery and for me the most exciting displays - costumes. Contained within the Armoury are the... More

This is a must see when in Moscow. It is a museum full of wonderful exhibits, ie jewel encrusted bibles, state carriages, gowns, Faberge eggs, armour, silver wear, gold wear, crowns etc, etc. Fabulous. Allow plenty of time

The extent of the collection here rivals a number of the collections in the Hermitage especially some of the gold pieces as well as displaying many period dresses and a wide collection of carriages. Strongly recommend it.

Crowns, armory, Faberge eggs, porcelain, gold icons and book covers, clothes, chariots - you name it. Everything is beautiful, but there are not many explanatory plates, so you need a proper guide if you want to learn something, and not only look at the exhibits.

This is a literal treasure trove in Moscow. The collection of Faberge eggs and all the other royal items are mesmerizing. It is an interesting place to see how craftsmanship has changed over the years and how decadent the lifestyle was during the old days of the Tsars. So many diamonds and precious stones.. was one of the highlights for... More

This visit was one of the highlights of our Moscow trip. The Armoury contains the most amazing jewels, icons, carriages, and clothing. It absolutely should not be missed, particularly if you know something about Russian history. Even if you don't, you will be dazzled by the sheer amount of riches and jewels - far more than the crown jewels of... More

Very interesting not just arms, but faberge eggs , ornaments etc etc, well worth a visit, make you go to the diamond fund inside the armoury you have to go through another layer of security, but is dripping with gold and diamonds etc.
