The Armoury Chamber

Group enquiry/specific needs

Upon hearing the word "armoury", it is easy to become excited, especially for those with a keen interest in weapons and war. As the name implies, originally, the Armoury was created to serve solely as a weapons store. Until later, by decree of Peter the Great, it was decided that extremely valuable and rare items were to be transferred to this marvellous museum. Now, the Armoury is teeming with awesome artefacts; so much more than a simple collection of antique weapons! You will be awestruck by the ancient state regalia, items from the royal household such as carriages, clothing and silverware, as well as the world-famous Fabergé eggs, crowns and much more! We are excited to invite you on a tour where almost every exhibit is steeped in legend! Feast your eyes!

Here you will find exhibits, which simply cannot be missed:

  • Monomakh's legendary cap, a breathtaking symbol of autocratic power Russia
  • Minin and Pozharsky’s famous sword
  • The legend Dobrynya Nikitich’s armour
  • Tsarina Catherine the Great’s beautiful coronation dress
  • The young princes Ivan and Peter’s specially made double throne.

It is simply impossible to list all the interesting exhibits of the Armoury in such a short description but rest assured, you are in for a hearty and enriching experience. Amongst other things, you will take in: an extensive and jaw-droopingly beautiful collection of silver and gold jewellery, ceremonial weapons, precious fabrics, and even ceremonial horse harnesses.

Join us, you will certainly not regret it!
