We wanted to see the Diamond Fund only, as we had seen other parts of the Kremlin on an earlier visit. There are many descriptions of how to get tickets. We were directed to the main ticket office, which has a special Diamond Fund booth, and after many locals were turned away, we were given tickets straight away, for 500... More

Didn't really like it much..there are diamonds and lots of them, but there is no awe factor..some of the designs were quite modern and we were told (from an unofficial guide), that they were put there much later as they didn't have enough diamonds for a museum in itself. anyway, 20-25 mins, a lot of shining stones. you get amazed...

The Diamond Fund is an optional part of the Armory tour that you have to pay extra for. They also have very tight security due to the content. If you like big pile of cut diamond, big gold nugget then this is a must see for you. For me it was OK and kind of boring. They do have some... More

More security checks and another entrance fee, but so well worth it. Some of the exhibits are so beautiful and absolutely priceless. Marvel at the skill and reality of such wealth in a relatively small exhibition room. Makes H S Samuels look even more naff than ever!

My husband and I visited Diamond Fund in July 2015. The collection is located in the same building as the Armoury and we were able to buy tickets on our way down from the Armoury, in the foyer. The fund is open every day apart from Thursday, between 10:00 and 17:00 but there is a lunch closure between 13:00 and... More

The Diamond Fund of Russia was opened in the Moscow Kremlin Armory in 1967, but you need to pay it separately, but it only costs 500 Russian Ruble (about less than 9 Euros), nothing comparing with this world-famous state collection of the symbols of the royal power, outstanding jewellery of the 18th-19th century, rare precious stones, richly decorated imperial orders,...

This is inside the Kremlin Armoury. You have to buy tickets separately once inside the Armoury. There is not a lot in terms of space to cover, but the jewels are just stunning. Definitely worth a visit.
