Very interesting and a separate ticket from the Kremlin and ARmoury ticket. Catherine the Great's crown, scepter and many other jewels are stunning. Gold nuggets bigger than your head on display. About 20 minutes to visit. I recommend and your wife will thank you.

Even if you're not that into jewelry, you might find the rocks an incredible sight to see - the sheer size of most of them and their brilliance is amazing.

Czars were opulent; much more than the French crown. This epitomized in the Diamond Fund. You will find the crown jewels (which made me remember fairy tales), an Order of Victory (given to very high military officers at the end of World War 2), necklaces and bracelets. It is diamonds, more diamonds, abundant gold and plenty of platinum. Sadly, no... More

Within the Kremlin complex, this is definitely worth a look. An impressive collection, many of which we hadn't seen before.

We bought tickets inside the Armoury Building on our Kremlin Day. The Diamond Fund is fairly small but is full of wonderful things to see. Huge diamonds, wonderful jewellery and huge blocks of gold! It only takes about an hour but well worth it. Highly recommended!

The Diamond Fund is located within the Kremlin Walls. The security at the entrance was extremely tight and only 15 people were allowed in a group when entering the exhibit room. Once inside, the crown jewels of the Czars of Russia were neatly laid out for all to see. Other exhibits include gold and platinum nuggets from the Ural Mountains.... More

What an amazing place looking at all the fabulous jewels. Loved the tiaras. Amazing craftsmanship from bygone years, together with the history. Strongly recommend a tour. No bags or photographs allowed. You need the audio guide as you just press the relevant numbers for each display cabinet.

Some of the most beautiful jewel work I have ever seen. A very large collection. You should not take any large bags or backpacks with you- they are nt allowed and slow down your group- you will have to leave them and your jackets in the checkin. No pictures allowed but they will let you keep your camera. They give... More

A must see in Moscow. On par with the Crown Jewels. I did not know diamonds could be that big. The artistry is extremely good.

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.
