The Diamond Fund is a small but impressive collection of diamonds and other jewels. It costs 500 rubles to visit and takes about 15 minutes. It is well worth it.

Sorry, we did not manage to visit this museum. We came to halfway 9 on the ticket booth, it did not work yet ... so we came at 11.15 and it was a break until 12. We came again at 12.30 and the tickets were sold out. Very disappointed with the overall impression.

Bought the ticket whilst in the Armoury as wanted to see the diamonds which were beautiful but the Tiaras and Crowns for me were the best.

It is worth seeing if you are passionate about diamonds as well as jewellery and are prepared to wait in a queue for an hour or even more... Tickets are sold in Alexander's garden ("Aleksandrovsky sad") in a small ticket office every day except Thursday. The garden is in close proximity to the metro station with the same name. Tickets...

Very small exhibit but worth it if you like precious stones or things that sparkle! You won't be missing anything if you pass this up.

Luckily for me, a Russian friend told me not to miss the Diamond Fund, which could have happened given the number of marvels to see in and around the Kremlin. Inside, there are some fabulous jewellery but also big unpolished diamonds. And many, if not all of these have a history. Don't miss it! N.B.: Mind this requires a distinct... More

Great exhibition of gold and diamonds that originate from Russia soil. The designs of crowns, tiaras, bracelets and necklaces are stunning!
