Well worth the 500 roubles. Some magnificent and historic items. Be aware of the so called technical break aka lunch from 1pm to 2pm (or thereabouts).

Can buy tickets on the door. Very nicely presented exhibits with good audio commentary. Sometimes difficult to see cases if large tour groups present at same time.

After visiting The Armoury we went inside the Diamond Fund. However, you can only get tickets once you go inside the diamond fund. So if you don't want to go to The Armoury you can go to the side entrance and tell the guards that you wish to visit the Diamond Fund. When you go in, you go up to... More

One of the three best Diamond funds in the whole world (the other two are in London and Tehran). Lot of amazing jewelery wonderfully crafted and exposed.

We bought our Kremlin tickets on line but you cant get the Diamond Fund tickets that way. They were of course sold out when we got there at 9:30 am (with museum opening at 10). But then we got a great tip- just go in with your regular Kremlin tickets, march right over to the Diamond fund entrance and ask... More

It is a very rare place where not only the price but the beauty and chic of jewelry takes your breath away. Strongly recomemded to book your visit way in advance. It is a closed room with no gadgets allowed with 20 min excurtion and fantastic emotions!

We were blown away by the jewels although we couldn't help thinking that all this splendor was created on the backs of the peasantry!!!

The Dimod fund itself was impressive. Others have covered it in more detail. The tickets to the Diamond Fund sell out very quickly for the morning and afternoon sessions in the main ticket booth outside the Kremlin grounds. If you are in a hurry, my suggestion is to get a ticket to the Kremlin Cathedrals or the grounds to go... More

Staying in Red Square & Kitay-gorod

Neighborhood Profile
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 well.
