Actually it is a huge safe in the middle of the Kremlin full of Russian crown jewels (at least of what's left of them). Still the Large Imperial Crown and scepter with the famous Orlov Diamond are on display. And a soldier with a Kalashnikov at the door. Also gold and platinum nuggets and diamonds from Siberia - famous Yakutia... More

The jewels in this collection need to be seen to be believed. They are truly mind boggling. We could not believe the size of some of the gems and the intricate work in some of the pieces. It is beautifully curated and they only let a certain number of people in at a time so its not crowded and you... More

Exhilarating & Spectacular... MUST visit.. It is not a large area.. Probably just two rooms.. But the Collection is impressive. The Eye of an Indian God, probably Ashwathama's third eye, was interesting to me.

It only took me 30 minutes to walk around here but it is well worth the extra entrance price. There are some amazing pieces of gold and platinum on view and lovely jewels.

Read one of the reviews that it is not worth it. Thinking might as well have a look since I'm already here. Really not worth it. No doubt lots of diamonds but it is a pretty small exhibition with only 12-15 display windows of real jewelry designs. The rest are just showing the gold and silver nuggets

We visited the Diamond Fund and the Armoury together. We entered the Armoury entrance, dropped our coats off at the cloak room, bought audio guides for the Armoury and proceeded to the Diamond Fund. We purchased our tickets, they gave us a small pamphlet with descriptions of the cases and you can also get a free audio guide (must!). If... More

We visited this along with the Armory visit and was blown away by the diamonds and gold. So many beautiful things and so sad to think so much of it was lost, destroyed, and melted down by the Communists. They said that only about 10% of the riches of the czars are left and on display.

The place houses the valuable pieces from the Tsar era. The pieces of jewelry are priceless in terms of value and as a work of art. I'm partial, I love diamonds!

Loved this display of natural resources of russia in the most aesthetic way. For me the stealer was queen catherine's super bejewelled crown and the spetum containing the nadir shah diamond.Couldn't stop staring !

An amazing display of jewels from Russian history. Spectacular coronets. Not expensive but not part of the Armoury ticket
