A collection of crown jewels makes Armoury Chamber one of Moscow's most popular tourist attractions. Part of the city's centrally located World Heritage Site, this museum houses 15,000 royal dresses, including those worn by the Empress Elizabeth during her coronation ceremonies. Other highlights include a pair of Peter the Great's boots, numerous royal carriages and sledges, and a lavish throne studded with over 800 diamonds. Be sure to visit the upstairs galleries, which contain a vast collection of silver artworks produced between the 12th and 17th centuries, as well as 10 world-famous Easter eggs made by celebrated jeweler Faberge. Ease your journey through Russian art history with an audio guide, available at the on-site ticket office.

  • Lots of Russians stuff in display like clothing and carriages etc not an armory as the name suggests. Worth s visit if you have the time and are interested in that sort of stuff.

  • Definitely worth a visit. Great collection of Russian royal attributes. Deep dive into pre Revolutionary Russia. Great audio guides in English 👍
  • A very interesting and thought provoking look into a different age and a glimpse into a world of splendor and privilege. Well worth a visit, lots to see, start early.
