The Armoury is within the massive expanse of the Kremlin. It is difficult to find on one's own and there are few signs or English speakers to help. Once you get there, however, the collection of gems and precious metals is amazing. This collection is...More

Quite a nice museum, not quite what we expected as we expected more arms but interesting enough. The old carriages were quite fascinating, the audio guide in English was quite good overall.

The Armoury is filled with clothing, jewels, crowns and armor that the various tsars used during their time. They have many examples of silver and other gifts that were given by other countries to the royals. The crowns are very popular so it is hard...More

What a place to visit - so much history, so many things to see. Royal regalia, Faberge eggs, carriages, thrones, books, silver, gold - too much to go on about. Truly a must see in Moscow

It's a nice collection of personal objects from Tsar's time. It is really well done with the audio guide. You have a time set for entering. You need to buy the tickets in advance, but you just get a "voucher" which you need to exchange...More

We did a tour as part of the Kremlin tour. It was amazing, our guide was great. You could honestly spend all day in here looking at everything and learning about the history of Russia.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
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
well.

Yes, but subject to availability since they have a quota for each hour of the day. Also, the queues may be very long.
