“Memorable”

Enjoyed seeing the faberge eggs given by Nicholas II to Alexandra, and the carriages of Elizabeth and Catherine the Great, as well as her gowns, and even robes of Peter the Great

“It was a bit disappointing also doesn't give you access to rest of the kremlin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Overall I found the armoury a bit disappointing. It has some nice pieces it but it's not that big (40 mins was enough for me). Also you have to pay an additional fee to get into the diamond exhibit. If you do want to go it's worth noting that you can only buy tickets at set times and that the ticket doesn't give you access to the rest of the Kremlin, you would have get a different ticket for that.

“In my opinion, best Kremlin museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Really enjoyed this museum, from all the silver and gold dishware and silverware as gifts from foreign states to the gildedn and showy carriages for the Czars and Czarinas to the incredibly ornate clothing, robes and dresses for those in the church and and of the priveledged.. it was terrific. And.. especially for any woman.. loved the Diamond fund right next door. Oh my! The jewels, diamonds, emeralds, rubys, tiaras, gold... and it's all real. Incredible.

“A must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Awesome - so much stuff to see - overtly opulent and lots of wonderful things to see - really busy but a must see. Some confusion with ticket - we got a ticket for armory thinking it also including the Kremlin generally but didnt so be sure to get two tickets, three if you want the diamond collection too
