The diamonds inside have lots of interesting stories, without a knowledgable guide, probably all you'll see is a bunch of stones.

I went through this exhibit quickly. It's a lot of diamonds on display. My only complaint is that photography isn't allowed.

You has to schedule your visit ahead of time as number of visitors per day is limited. Unfortunately, time in the room is limited as well. Amazing rocks and jewelry. History will amaze you. Dandelion made with diamonds - fantastic!

This place is crowded by tourists so my advice is to drop here during working hours and when there are no school holidays. Place is definitely worth seeing. If there is possibility - get tickets in advance, lines or people who want to buy them are horrible so are the lines inside to Diamond fund. Yet the collection is impressive.

You must make time for this while visiting the Kremlin. I recommend you hit this first at 10 am when it opens, followed by the Armory. The jewels will blow you away. One of the most amazing collections you will ever see.

there are only a few of you allowed in at a time and then you are locked in with some guards but you are allowed to take your time in looking at the stunning jewellery, Huge beautiful diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, beautiful intricate designs, all in all lovely.

If your a foreigner you will easy get tickets to this museum. It's very small- just 2 rooms, but interesting. They have guided tours but not sure if for English speaking persons too.

Going here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you have to try - there aren't many other places on Earth, if any, where you can see things like this. It's different than the Crown Jewels in London, in that most of the jewels are raw, not all set in jewelry. We're talking glass cases full of thousands of diamonds, in all... More
