The armoury is an amazing place to visit, probably the highlight of the Kremlin. The treasure trove of jewels and regalia have to be seen to be believed. It is worth hiring a guide though as there is so much to see and we felt...More

To be able to walk through this area and see how the museum items has been preserved. The austerity is in the detail of the dresses, the crockery, the transport and then a well stocked shop!

You do not have to be into history to appreciate this place. The building itself, apart from the contents is interesting and a few hours here pass by quickly. We had pre-booked tickets which is always a plus in these places to avoid the queues.

What a great place to visit - make sure you give yourself plenty of time if the clothes of Catherine the great, her carriages and those of her family and forebears interest you. There is also everything from Armour to Faberge, from ornate gifts to...More

You have to book ahead for this and it is best to have a guide. Shop around as guides can be very expensive...I am not sure why?

The Armoury was included in our whirl wind tour of Moscow. I am not a museum type but I was very, very impressed as our guide made each exhibition come to life with the history behind it. Well worth it if you have a guide.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

You can do it by yourself and probably would be cheaper. €10 is about 650 rubles and Armoury ticket is 700. If you leave your ID card at the desk you get free audio guide in desirable language. Look on their website for... More

The armoury is definitely worth a solo visit, and, in my opinion, there is no need of a proper guide, since the audio guide is fine enough. As for the Fabergé Eggs, I recall that there were just a couple, maybe three of... More
