Pre-book to skip the lines, but do not wait for the time you booked, as we managed to enter at 11 even though we have booked for the 12 o'clock. You get a free audio tour but it is not very good, so don't rely...More

The unfortunate name of this fantastic museum probably deters many potential visitors. While there is a room of armour and weapons, it has much, much more. I think of it as equivalent to the UK's Tower of London with it's Russian version of the crown...More

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.

Yes, but subject to availability since they have a quota for each hour of the day. Also, the queues may be very long.
