The armoury is a slight misnomer as it suggests this place is full of weaponry - it isn't so much even though historically that was its purpose. Rather this place is a treasure trove of artefacta from primarily the 18th century onwards including elegant costumes...More

When planning on going to visit the Armoury make sure to get tickets in advance. We bought them at the ticket office near Alexander Park and we only got them because we waited over an hour in line. The museum is amazing and we really...More

The Armoury is one of the most important and oldest museum and home to a collection of weaponry, ceremonial carriages, royal thrones and imperial regalis. Here you will gain a real insight into the jaw droppingly opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the Russian royality.

the armoury can be accessed from two points in the Kremlin, If you enter from the Main gate you save the entrance fee to the kremlin as you have to walk past the main sites to get to the armory.

The name would suggest a museum displaying armour with a connection to the armed forces. It isn't. It is a museum displaying a wide variety of Russian artefacts, from jewellery to carriages and costumes. It is a very interesting place to visit, especially for the...More

I thought that after the Hermitage and a couple of palaces in St. Petersburg, there would be nothing else in Russia that could impress me... Wrong! The Armoury has little to do with armor - it is all about the church and royal family precious...More

This impressive building is also housing an impressive selection of military objects. It is advised to hire a guide.

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

You can do it by yourself and probably would be cheaper. €10 is about 650 rubles and Armoury ticket is 700. If you leave your ID card at the desk you get free audio guide in desirable language. Look on their website for... More
