chariots were the highlight - the rest of the museum isn't really worth visiting... quite pricey (700 RUB) compared to the entrance to the kremlin (500RUB). we were in and out in 30 minutes..

As part of a visit to the Kremlin you can book additional tickets for the Armory. This is money well spent. We especially liked the large and impressive carriage collection Also the renaissance clothes collection was beautiful and gave a very good impression of what people wore those days. Tip: book your tickets online before your trip. The day of... More

The armoury was probably the most hyped attraction on my list. The entry fee is 700 RUB and you will have to purchase tickets which sell out like hot cakes and there are limited number of tickets in each window of entry. There are 4 slots of entries and the show lasts for 1 hour. You will be given a... More

When it comes to Kremlin, it is most known for being secretive and movies simply didn't help at all. The Armory is currently a museum that exhibit the collection of the royal treasures, from gifts from leaders from other countries to the royal's own collection. Get a guide or rent an audio guide to really appreciate the true value of... More

Due to the nature of our tour, we were only given highlights of the Armoury but what I saw I liked. Fascinating insight into the lives of past Tsars and Tsarinas with many outfits on display. Also weaponry, carriages and Faberge eggs! The jewel-encrusted - everything section provided a fascinating experience of Russian history. The Faberge eggs were something to... More

The daily limited number of tickets somehow had heightened my expectation. But the overall experience was average. Long and slow line to go through the security check. Entrance fee over content was way too steep compared to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. The fabled Faberge eggs were a bit dingy, and so were the royal carriages. I used the Lonely... More

We visited the Armory Chamber in early July, 2015. Mind boggling collection of Imperial Easter Eggs (10), diamond encrusted thrones and crowns, royal robes and vestments and dresses from Catherine the Great and Czarina Elisabeth (Peter the Great's daughter) among others, armor and helmets,etc. What was a surprise were the exhibits of the beautiful royal carriages and harnesses and sleds....
