Getting in to this exhibit seems designed to be as difficult and disorganized as possible. Pretty much everyone that works at the Kremlin will tell you to go buy tickets at windows 4 &5 in Alexander Park. If you are not a Russian national, this...More

Although our Tauck tour included the Armory museum, it did not include the Diamond Fund. So I asked our tour director how to get tickets and he sent one of our local guides to help us get our tickets and to enter in the right...More

Tip - book a private tour with guide and as part of your Kremlin ticket - book the Diamond fund and Armoury. Some phenomenal jewels associated with historic Russia and its prominent characters. Beautiful diamonds to see - don't miss them....

Wonderful display of Russia’s Imperial Crown Jewels- I have never seen stones and gold nuggets like this in my life. Each piece of jewelry tells a story of the rich history of the Russian Empire. In the Moscow Kremlin, a MUST-SEE!

Queued for a ticket, then queued 20 minutes in sub zero temperatures to have a bag search before entry. Bag was searched once again on entry, then the final guard raised his eyebrows as our ticket had been issued at 11.50 for the 11.00am -...More

It's small yet exquisite. It costs 500 rubles with a free audioguide included. You don't have to get the ticket at the ticket office. If you're planing to visit the armoury, the diamond fund is in the same building/entrance and once you've finished the tour...More

Must see! Only hope I can take some photos. The security is very tight, and you and find guards at very corner. Recommend to rent a translator before entering the room, very informative.

Part of the Kremlin museums but you need a separate ticket. I really loved the display. Guided tours in Russian only. I would highly recommend this especially if you like jewelry.

First of all, too complicated to buy a ticket for a foreigner. Ticket center (for all tickets to the Kremlin) has a booth for this "Diamond Fund", but limited to some timings e.g. 2PM, 3PM, 4PM, etc. But the screen shows different timings, and the...More

Lavish luxury. But at what price, for the people who footed the bill? One is not surprised Russia had revolts, and a Revolution. Was booked by the agency that organised my whole trip. I did not request it. Good to be seen once, but not...More

Hi! 1) Unfortunately, it's not possible to book the tickets online to the Diamond Fund! This is due to the fact that Diamond Fund can only be entered in the group and only at the time which will be written at the ticket... More

Yes, that;s correct and it's the only way to get the tickets. Go up into the armory and the diamond fun is up there with guards out front and a ticket desk. Buy them there.
