  • Born in Moscow, I haven’t been here and this was my dream to visit the Armory chamber. What an impressive and magical place with so much history.  more »
  • I'm not a big fan of history and weapons, but this museum just has stolen my heart. This is the oldest one in Moscow, and I was surprised to see the royal arsenal dating back to the 16th century...  more »
  • I would say this is the best place to visit in Kremlin and in Moscow. The collections here are self explanatory and describes the luxurious living of Czars. This is basically a Museum, named as Armoury chamber, since it was an armoury chamber many years before. Be ready to witness huge waiting lines to get the tickets. Better book online or come 30mins early before the opening time to get the tickets
  • A classy museum! Major part of the collection comes from Russia but many interesting items are also from Persia, India, Turkey, Germany and Sweden.
