View the Imperial Easter eggs created for the last two Russian emperors, Alexander III and Nicholas II, at Faberge Museum. Devoted to the creative work of the great Russian jeweler Carl Faberge, this privately owned museum was founded to repatriate lost cultural valuables to Russia, and features approximately 4,000 works of decorative applied and fine arts, including gold and silver items, paintings, porcelain, and bronze. Much of the collection belonged to the royal family and other members of the monarchist courts of Europe. Guided tours last about an hour and are offered in Russian and English, although English tours are limited so be sure to reserve in advance through the website, or call the museum directly. You can explore the museum independently during specific hours, otherwise you must join a guided tour to view the exhibits. Note that photography is not permitted inside the museum. Plan a trip to St. Petersburg easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Only the museum of the Kremlin has a larger collection with 10 eggs. But here you can take pictures that are not allowed in the Kremlin. It is open until 21:00 hours and with an hour you have seen everything, so a visit in the evening before the food is recommendable. The museum is closed on Fridays.
Very well maintained and accurate information regarding the items here. One of the best museums I have been! The curating of the items and the naming of the rooms, make a lot of sense. I am impressed.
Outstanding exhibits (with a special mention for the imperial Easter eggs). I recommend taking a tour or the audio guide to get out the most of it. Exhibits are well explained by the audio guide.
