As always it is interesting to see how historical figures lived including how they dressed and c decorated themselves what they ate and what they ate it from. How they armed themselves and choose to travel tells us lots as does the absolute opulence and decadence in which they emerged themselves. Ita all here

It's a great place to visit together with The Diamond Fund. Unbelievable treasures through the ages - amazing jewels. It's timed entry - every couple of hours. Good idea to book direct in advance to save long queues.

Do not miss the Fabergé eggs collection, they are beautiful. Is worth to pay a little bit extra and go inside jewelry chamber. Breath taking jewels! Pretty well organized museum, and excellent place to buy souvenirs!

We had a guide to show us around as part of a Moscow tour. You can get audio guides (tape players) inside to take you round. There's an amazing, large, collection of royal regalia, coaches, armour, gold and silver, etc. You need a few hours. It's a separate ticket to the Kremlin itself.
