This review is coming from someone who doesn't really enjoy massive history overload on vacation. BUT this armoury was fabulous to visit!! The carriages and their decorations were amazing. They are the actual carriages, and not kept under glass or far away from you. They are right there and it's really amazing to see the size, craftmanship and hear the stories behind them. I usually never recommend such a stop, but this shouldn't be missed!

Although called an "armory", it holds many historical Russian and given to Russia artifacts. the weapons actually holds a small part of the museum.
Truly a must when you visit Moscow

Totally enjoyed our visit to the Armoury. From the collection of carriages to the period dress, collection of crowns and thrones to the Faberge Eggs (10 here at the Armoury). Totally fascinating!

Visited while in Russia for the World Cup. Would highly recommend buying tickets in advance, makes the whole process much easier and quicker. Vast collection of artifacts succeeds wonderfully in telling the history of the Russian empire. Audio tour is great.
