Part of the Kremlin museums but you need a separate ticket. I really loved the display. Guided tours in Russian only. I would highly recommend this especially if you like jewelry.

First of all, too complicated to buy a ticket for a foreigner. Ticket center (for all tickets to the Kremlin) has a booth for this "Diamond Fund", but limited to some timings e.g. 2PM, 3PM, 4PM, etc. But the screen shows different timings, and the...More

Lavish luxury. But at what price, for the people who footed the bill? One is not surprised Russia had revolts, and a Revolution. Was booked by the agency that organised my whole trip. I did not request it. Good to be seen once, but not...More

The contents of the Diamond Fund were not just large, impressive jewels but truly beautiful jewellery. It was delightful to see a number of our favourite pieces in paintings at the Hermitage a week later. Go early to keep in front of the crowds.

This was the most impressive collection of jewels that I have ever seen in one place. There were multiple displays of diamond and other precious stone jewels. It was also pretty cool to see the Shah diamond. If you are a non-Russian speaker, make sure...More

An amazing array of display cases brimming with diamonds etc. Maybe not everything will be to your taste but you will surely be astounded by several items at the very least. Some important historical items are also on display.

If you are fond of jewellery, then you must ensure that you don't miss the Diamond Fund. A fine collection of some of the best diamonds of the Russian empire. I am not a big fan of jewellery, but I was also amazed at this...More

I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting more diamond displays, but they were few. Thankfully it was included in my tour & I didn't have to pay extra.

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, that;s correct and it's the only way to get the tickets. Go up into the armory and the diamond fun is up there with guards out front and a ticket desk. Buy them there.
