Enjoyed touring this small museum. You will wear a headset filled with information on each item. The eggs were formerly part of the Forbes collection. All stunningly beautiful. Many other items as well-frames, boxes, trinkets, etc.

A relatively quiet, small (by St Petersburg’s standards) museum offers an insight into Faberge creations and some other pieces of art, mostly dining silverware. All pieces were a delight to see. It is worth to hire an audio guide as the stories behind some pieces...More

Staff were awesome even close called a taxi for us and waited with us until it arrived. Rooms flow beautifully and are wonderfully decorated. Displays were really good spaced out lots of room to see all angles. Nice display of eggs

We had heard about the FBerge eggs, but until you see this collection up close, you can't appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of these works of art. Truly a wonder!

Russia is well known for Faberge eggs. It was defiantly well worth visit. The rooms are stunning. The displays are amazing and the Faberge eggs like nothing you will ever see. This is a must when in St. Petersburg.

the well known Faberge created such amazing works of art, with fantastic small mechanical works inside, that you cannot imagine existed in those time. Now they are no wonders with electronics and miniature motors, but in that age, amazing

We went by ourselves, you can get an audioguide when you buy your ticket. Very doable by yourself.

We did not book in advance and like the other respondent, there was no queue. The museum is open 10.00 to 18.00, so maybe worth getting there early.
