They have a fantastic collection of real Faberge eggs, and a lot of other things, it is a museum that is different, you learn something, and these russian jewel eggs.

“Mostly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Initially thought the entrance price was a bit steep but in fact was money well spent. The exhibition is enchanting and the lady guide knowledgable and very helpful. Unfortunately the visit was marred by the rude bluster & discourtesy of the security guard at the entrance.

Not only is this a beautiful little museum,(the pieces are amazing), but the tour guides are multi -lingual and really know the artwork and the history. Well worth the visit.

“A tourist scam”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Visited the Faberge museum in Baden Baden with 2 senior citizens 2 weeks ago. We asked a local and he was very polite, because all he said was huh! Its an ok touristy thing! I paid 15 euros and they paid 12 euros. You proceed to the second floor where you will count 3 Faberge eggs none that impressive. The rest of the tiny floor has medals and other objects of their collection. There is little explanation of what you are seeing and all in German And no; no audio guide. On the walls the same photo of laborers working is repeated. This will take you 5 minutes to see. Then as you walk to the next floor you will see the tiny unkept, so called garden. As you walk up the steps you can read something in English: an explanation of how the Incas worshipped gold, in comparison to the Russians. ???? (scratch your head). The second floor is an animal zoo. Basically tiny animals made in stones. The other thing you will see is a huge gold dinnerware set. There was one employee who offered to explain in English, but she was cornered by a group of 3 explaining in Germany. In 10 mins we were out of there. Some reviewers might say Faberge is more than about eggs. Well, if that is the case, then how come the brochure and the entrance to the ‘museum’ have displays with eggs. I have paid less that 10 euros to see wonderful museums with audioguide, and/or written explanations in other languages. We should have taken the local cue. Save your money sit in a café by the river and have a great beer instead.

“Rip Off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very expensive and not worth it. Saw three Faberge eggs and two floors of other items. Done in less than a half hour.
