Amazing stuff!

At first you would think that you have overpaid to watch a very small part of the royal jewels. However, make sure that you do no skip the inner chamber which houses the actual romanov throne and other regalia. Many people completely miss this, as it is in a low lit room, and then complain that the diamond fund was... More

Firstly to gain admission to the Diamond Fund you first have to access the armoury (book online and avoid the queues). In the amroury on the ground floor you purchase the admission ticket to the Diamond Fund. We are not just talking about diamonds (one is 31 carat) but gold, platinum and about every precious stone you can think of.... More

as can be expected, the tsars had tremendous wealth to amass a fortune in incredible jewelery. It costs 500 rubles for entry on top of the 700 for the Kremlin Armoury.

If you are wowed by other worldly gemstones, than this is definitely worth the price of admission. If not, then skip it. My sister and I loved looking at the royal crowns, tiaras and jewels but there is nothing else here except some hunks of gold.

We really enjoyed the Diamond Fund. Lots of diamonds, gold and platinum. You can get the tickets in two places, inside the Armory after you enter the Armory with your Armory ticket and outside just before you have to show your ticket to enter the cathedral area. We went to the Armory and went back to the desk just before... More

This is an add on to the Kremlin tour. Under close scrutiny we naturally were escorted to a locked room containing some of the most beautiful and valuable royal jewels in the world. It was spellbinding to see crowns, orbs and sceptres carried by some of the most famous Tsars and their families. This attraction is not to be missed!

You can access this exibit after you visit to the armoury. The entrance fee is 500 RUB but it's worth it. Small place to visit and you may stay in line to enter as only a few people are admitted at a time. Again, no photos or videos are allowed inside. But wow, what a huge collection of precious stones,... More

Don't bother booking a tour company for your visit of the Kremlin, Armoury Exhibition and the Diamond Fund. Just go to the ticket office and you can figure it out yourself.
