It's small yet exquisite. It costs 500 rubles with a free audioguide included. You don't have to get the ticket at the ticket office. If you're planing to visit the armoury, the diamond fund is in the same building/entrance and once you've finished the tour...More

Must see! Only hope I can take some photos. The security is very tight, and you and find guards at very corner. Recommend to rent a translator before entering the room, very informative.

Part of the Kremlin museums but you need a separate ticket. I really loved the display. Guided tours in Russian only. I would highly recommend this especially if you like jewelry.

First of all, too complicated to buy a ticket for a foreigner. Ticket center (for all tickets to the Kremlin) has a booth for this "Diamond Fund", but limited to some timings e.g. 2PM, 3PM, 4PM, etc. But the screen shows different timings, and the...More

Lavish luxury. But at what price, for the people who footed the bill? One is not surprised Russia had revolts, and a Revolution. Was booked by the agency that organised my whole trip. I did not request it. Good to be seen once, but not...More

The contents of the Diamond Fund were not just large, impressive jewels but truly beautiful jewellery. It was delightful to see a number of our favourite pieces in paintings at the Hermitage a week later. Go early to keep in front of the crowds.

This was the most impressive collection of jewels that I have ever seen in one place. There were multiple displays of diamond and other precious stone jewels. It was also pretty cool to see the Shah diamond. If you are a non-Russian speaker, make sure...More

An amazing array of display cases brimming with diamonds etc. Maybe not everything will be to your taste but you will surely be astounded by several items at the very least. Some important historical items are also on display.

If you are fond of jewellery, then you must ensure that you don't miss the Diamond Fund. A fine collection of some of the best diamonds of the Russian empire. I am not a big fan of jewellery, but I was also amazed at this...More

Hi! 1) Unfortunately, it's not possible to book the tickets online to the Diamond Fund! This is due to the fact that Diamond Fund can only be entered in the group and only at the time which will be written at the ticket... More

Yes, that;s correct and it's the only way to get the tickets. Go up into the armory and the diamond fun is up there with guards out front and a ticket desk. Buy them there.
