Full description
The unique collections of this Museum that are presented to the public consist of works by the famed jeweler, Carl Faberge. Thanks to the oligarch and patron Viktor Vekselberg, the Faberge Museum most notably showcases 9 original Faberge eggs that belonged to the Imperial family. These eggs, formerly part of the collection owned by Malcolm Forbes, have a considerable cultural and historical value and are also witnesses of the Russian master-jeweler’s creativity.  Situated on the banks of the Fontanka River in the sumptuous Shuvalov Palace, the Faberge Museum presents an ornamental and decorative art collection as well as a collection of icons that formerly belonged to the Imperial family. Your guide will explain the histories of these cultural and historical treasures. You will learn more about the House of Faberge and the tradition of the Imperial eggs with this ticket admission. Finally, you will discover the miniature gifts found in Faberge's eggs, from a miniature replica of the Imperial coach to a vial of vodka made from precious metals.

    Eggs of the Tsar, and more!

    This week we had the joy of touring the Faberge Museum in St Petersburg using a Get Your Guide tour group named Tsar Visit and a tour guide named Alexandra Mamontova. Tsar Visit was prompt and professional...emailing me with the guide’s name and meeting details. Alexandra was prompt and professional. She greeted us in the designated meeting spot in a timely manner and was very organized. Her descriptions of the museum, the eggs, history, and the other museum pieces were outstanding. She knew all the details about each piece and discussed each item thoroughly. I had not realized that the museum would have additional pieces other than the actual eggs. It was very nice to learn so much about Faberge and the history the eggs, dishes, belt buckles, clocks, and more! The museum has a cloak room, free storage lockers, a coffee shop, a gift store, and permits photography without flash. We were delighted to have Alexandra as a guide and highly recommend her.

    Ilya, our guide, was excellent. He had great knowledge of the museum, Faberge and Russian history. He was interesting, personable and we felt he enjoyed spending time in the museum with us sharing his knowledge and personal opinion as much as we did. Many thanks Ilya!
