One of the Oldest and this is all about Moscow and Russia particularly. Little bit smaller compared with Hermitage but heavy with its contents. This is where you may witness the incredible collection from the pass and absolutely with so much of story and info...More

Three stars for a world famous museum that houses a unique collection? Unfortunately we didn’t get to see it all because of a distinctly Soviet attitude to customer service. It left us angry and frustrated. We booked online and were allocated tickets for 16:30 –...More

From a personal point of view this museum was a bit disappointing as rather than being an armoury museum it is a mixture of many things, a lot of which is very similar to other museum exhibits in the UK/Europe. It will no doubt interest...More

Without doubt this is one of the top sights/museums I have visited anywhere in the world... and I have been to hundreds...so in short, don't skip it! I believe the ticket cost 700, and the queues are long, but wait patiently because it's worth it!...More

This was the favorite part of my day in Moscow. It is amazing that so many valuable artifacts and items relating to the royals have been preserved and kept for centuries. While the name suggests that it would house armor and weapons, that is just...More

State Armoury is among the Oldest museum, and it was built originally to house the Jewellery, weapons and household products of the Tsars. The current building was erected in 1851, and the visit inside is well worth the time as you get to marvel at...More

The Faberge eggs alone make this place worthwhile. All the other artefacts collected by the ambassadors from different countries are an added bonus. Would love to see this again

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.
