  • The Armory in Moscow is the heart of the museum city. The treasure trove of historical relics is rich in a variety of priceless exhibits: Panagia, Bible, Faberge, collection of carriages, representative gifts. There are closed opera concerts of classical music

  • Carriages, knights' lats, queen dresses and maid of honor. Thrones, 18th century utensils. Weapons. At least once in a lifetime everyone should visit. We've been a few times.

  • Amazing place! I absolutely recommend it! It's well worth the price, aside from the first two halls which were a bit repetitive (religious stuff and daily life utilities) the place is awesome and very rich in history, you could probably spend hours here and not notice. The only Downside are the tourist groups just blocking the expositions not caring about the others, but that's just normal, I guess
  • I loved it! Great place to visit! So much to see. The museum isn't very big, but packed with artifacts: belonging to the Romanov dynasty, armour, gifts to tsars from foreign countries, dishes, jewelry, clothes ... Very interesting. Big advise try to have a tour guide, this makes it much more interesting!!
