There is so much to see. It took you back in time across different era's. They had all the armaments from 15-16th century until last century. Even carriages and jewellery and costumes worn by the royalty back then. Must see place in Moscow

The Armory is situated in the Kremlin - don't let either of these facts prevent you from viewing fabergie eggs or tzarist crowns in Russia

the Armoury had lots of historical information and artifacts; you can learn a great deal about the history of Russia. One problem I had was that I wasn't told where to enter the building; you have to go through security at one end of the Kremlin and hike all around Red Square before finding it.

There is quite complicated schedule and you can miss the right time to buy tickets, and you cannot book the tours online, it is better to hire someone to guide you there. It was easy to skip the lines and just enjoy the beauty and luxury of this museum. Don't miss it when you are In Moscow.

The Amoury displays the vast treasures and wealth accumulated during Russia's imperial past and other collections from more recent times. Peter the Great's boots, Catherine the Great's wedding dress, huge coaches, the livery worn by horses during imperial parades and intricate and beautiful Faberge eggs. A fascinating place to visit and shouldn't be missed.

Well worth the visit, it is an interesting mix of history featuring European gifts to the monarchy, religious artifacts, personal possessions such as coaches and clothing and of course the fabulous Faberge eggs. We used a guide which helped put the items in perspective, but even without, it is an worthwhile venue. Be early, the lines to get tickets and... More

As a part of the Kremlin tour this is a superb and wonderful museum. From all of the glittering jewellery, gold and silver displays to the various costumes worn by the various Russian royal families. For me the various royal carriages which are in such good condition were the highlight!

This is a must go place in Moscow. It was tons of history items from Russian Eras and a wonderful collection of items. You should get a audio guide to understand the museum as it is free of charge. To get inside you need to go to the line and wait a bit as this has specific visit times and... More
