Do the armory after visiting the Kremlin. Great collection of items including the usual military garb, weapons and medals, thrones, including costumes and dress, Faberge eggs, and royal carriages. Well worth it even if you're not into military history.

It's a fine museum, but the displays and interpretation are very outdated. Not that it should be an issue, given the rich tapestry of history covered, in particular, the royal connections and artefacts. Despite the 700 Rubles charge, it does seem that much of that money is not being reinvested. However, well worth a visit!!

The visit is timed so make sure you check your ticket when you buy it, it will have your entrance time on it. There is a lot see in the Armoury not just guns and swords etc. They have a great display of clothes worn in that period and some fantastic jewel encrusted coaches. Look out for the Faberge eggs...

This is not all about armour as the title suggests but treasures from wedding dresses to Faberge eggs to stunning English silver. It is a wonderful place not to be missed but best to book your tickets in advance to avoid too long a queue.

If you decide to go into the Kremlin I would recommend spending the extra money to also take a tour of the Armoury. Great display of Russian clothing, jewels, carriages, etc... We really enjoyed a few hours in here guiding ourselves through it all. Also, the building itself is a visual masterpiece inside.

This museum has some amazing items to view. Useful for English-speakers were the translations of almost all signs, quite rare in Moscow. Saw some fantastic treasures I was enthralled by.
