Kremlin Armoury (Armoury Chamber)

Kremlin, Moscow, 103132

The Basics

The Kremlin Armoury is situated within the Kremlin complex, though you’ll need to purchase a separate entry ticket to gain access to the exhibits. Tickets, which can be bought in advance or at the main box office, are limited in number and allow entry at a specific time slot only. For a more in-depth look at the Kremlin, opt for a guided tour that includes access to the Armoury as well as the Patriarch’s Palace and the complex’s cathedrals and churches.

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin, Armoury and Diamond Fund
Our guide, Valentina, was knowledgable, funny, intelligent and accommodating. The Diamond fund was closed but we enjoyed our tour of the Armory, Red Square and the Kremlin. I couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Thank you Valentina!

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin, Armoury and Diamond Fund
Had a wonderful tour of the above and on all levels it exceeded our expectations. Ekaterina was our guide...she was knowledgeable, fun and exercised skill in getting into places that were less busy at the time. We had a brilliant day, thanks to Ekaterina. Viator was easy to book on line and hassle free, will certainly use again!

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin With Ekaterina.

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin, Armoury and Diamond Fund
Choosing a private tour was a great idea. Our guide Ekaterina not only gave us a brilliant tour with lots of information about the Kremlin and Russian history, but also chatted about living in Moscow. For my husband and son and I, we felt like we were visiting with a friend and really enjoyed a marvellous time - even though it rained the whole time. As Scots, the rain wasn’t a problem and the friendly, helpful personality of Ekaterina made us feel welcome and at home. Excellent job Ekaterina ! The Spalding family, Scotland.

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin, Armoury and Diamond Fund
A truly outstanding tour with a consummate professional guide who was knowledgeable, courteous and made this the highlight of our visit to Moscow!! Oleg met us at the hotel and we quickly bonded while headed to the Metro. His energy, enthusiasm and love for his country was most evident and he shared interesting facts about everything we saw. We were met by someone near the ticket office who had already purchased our tickets which saved considerable time. We walked through Cathedral Square and visited several churches then headed to the Armory/ Treasury where Oleg ensured we saw every hall. He pointed out the highlights and while not rushing us through the exhibits. This personal tour by Oleg sure beat the herd mentality of a large group. We enjoyed Red Square, Alexandria's Garden and the Kremlin and gained an appreciation for the country, its history and culture as a direct result of Oleg's knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully who will be blessed to have Oleg as your guide.

Our guide, Oleg was excellent

Private Walking Tour of Kremlin, Armoury and Diamond Fund
Oleg was an excellent guide, friendly, easy to understand and knowledgeable. He took care to cater to our wishes (as we had been to the Kremlin previously but missed the armory on that occasion). We saw all the highlight of the Kremlin, and we (couple) were very satisfied with what we saw in the time available. He conducted the tour at our pace, and went out of his way to enhance our visit as much as possible. We enjoyed very much lunch with Oleg and he even helped us afterwards to locate a suitable store for some shopping to take home to friends. Highly recommended tour and guide. Thanks!

What to See Inside

The Armoury Chamber is divided across nine halls. Hall II features jewelry dating from the 18th–20th centuries, including the Grand Siberian Railway Fabergé egg that contains a golden model train with a ruby headlamp. Also popular is Hall IX, which displays royal court carriages. Look for a particularly extravagant model that carried Elizabeth I of Russia (Peter the Great’s daughter) from St. Petersburg to Moscow for her coronation.
