Book your tickets online if you want to see the museums and armory specially in summer. A good season is late autumn and late winter as per local guide

It was a great place included some historical church and Russia president office inside. You also can visit historical church which has lots of story behind , I recommend to visit there with tour guide to explain you everything.
Also you can take very beautiful and unique photos overthere.

It was interesting to see the Kremlin grounds but you can't go in many buildings, only the cathedrals. The Armory was amazing. They have free audio guides which explains the history of many pieces. It's an amazing collection full of Russian history and beauty.

The Kremlin along with the Red Square is an important UNESCO World Heritage Site. It the epicentre for sightseeing in Moscow. Opening hours 10am to 6pm (Summer hours) daily.

Note: There are three separate tickets for sightseeing at the Kremlin. There is a General entry ticket (500 RUB) for the 'Cathedral Square' churches along with (250 RUB) for the Ivan the Bell Tower and (250 RUB) ticket for a visit to the Armoury.

Note: You can purchase tickets online in advance or at the ticket office located in the Alexander Garden near the entrance through the Trinity Tower.

From outside, the Kremlin Walls and Towers are impressive to see. These were built near the end of the 15th century during the time of Ivan III. They were designed to be defensive and decorative by Italian architects Gilardi, Ruffo and Solari who were invited to Moscow and tasked with giving the wall an attractive feel.

Inside the Kremlin Walls, visitors are treated to a cluster of historic churches at the area known as Cathedral Square. These include the Cathedrals of the Assumption, Annunciation and Archangel as well as the Church of the Deposition, Church of the Twelve Apostles and the Patriarch's Palace, Ivan the Great's Bell Tower and the Armoury. You will also find assortments of cannons, the huge Tsar Bell and Cannon as well as the Taynitsky Garden.

All in all, there is easily 1/2 - 3/4 a day worth of sightseeing at the Kremlin. Entry queues can be quite long so do consider being ready for an early arrival in order to get ahead of the waves of tourist groups planning to visit as well.
