In my opinion the Armoury is the best museum in Moscow. The name is a little misleading because although there are armour and weaponry displays here, the real highlights are the gold, silver and jewels, the textiles, and the imperial carriages. Allow at least half a day to see everything properly, and ideally go with a local guide.

A must see in Moscow. Total priority. You will see a collection of Faberge eggs from the czarinas, all the gifts that ambassadors presented to the Czars, the crowns, the jewels, the gilded carriages, amazing! It is all very well exhibited, and the guided tour with personal audio is perfect. Do not miss it!

In this palace we can see a little of the history of the Russian imperial era. Many gifts received by the czars, antique weapons, jewelry, clothing, carriages. It is worth the visit. It is forbidden to take pictures.

When, when whenever will poor Russia ever have something like a reasonable government? The last country to release their serfs, and ruled by 'people' who could spend and buy whatever they wanted. Fortunately much has been preserved in the Kremlin Armoury. With the 1917 revolution the museums were protected and today are equal to the best in the world. If... More

This has an amazing amount of exhibits,most of which were stunning. The faberge eggs,the carriages,wedding dresses etc were all amazing ! I found it better without the audio guide,although I usually like them. I preferred to walk around on my own ,and read info on cases as they were all in English. The audio guide seemed to keep taking back... More

We were fortunate to have the service of a personal tour guide, who also happened to be a professor of arts and culture at the university, which meant we had the privilege of insights and knowledge that one would not ordinarily expect of a museum experience. Time for a visit must be pre-booked and the visit is restricted to two... More

While in Kremlin this is the must visit. On display are objects that belonged to Tsars, including clothing, jewelry, utensils and lots of beautiful things/ Amazing quantity of precious stones, gold and breathtaking art objects. Beautiful.

Beautiful pieces on display. I just wish photography was allowed. You are required to wear protective covers over your shoes.
