“A must for the vacationer”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The collection is historic and the items are wonderful. I must see the first time in Moscow. The collection of State silverware is incredible. Of course, there are the historic thrones, crowns and armour.

“Amazing”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

First what a great effort to keep all the artifacts in this mint condition. Second what an elegant building.

Only recommendation, if you can ask the staff to be more polite and smile

“Worth every penny and the Diamond Fund was terrific!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you want to find out more about Russia and Russian heritage, then this is the place to find out. Wonderful displays, jewels, silver, gold, costumes, carriages, armoury and so much more. The exhibition of Faberge eggs were just breath-taking and please, please go into the Diamond Fund. Some exquisite pieces in there along with huge chunks of raw gold, siliver and platinium. Just a great Museum to visit. English translations also help!
