Nice small museum displaying jewelery, icons, silverware, porcelain, vases, beautifull decorated rooms, etc. There is also one room showing the Faberge eggs, but that is only a very small part. A liitle bit disappointing actually. Price is steep for the size of the museum.

I thought this would be a small museum that concentrated on the Faberge eggs only. Instead it is a large museum in a beautiful building, and shows all sorts of objects. One room is dedicated to the eggs which is actually the 2nd largest collection...More

We took a tour of the museum and learned not only how the eggs were created but how they were obtained. The detail of the works are amazing.

By the time we visited, we'd been to so many St. Petersburg museums, and seen so many examples of opulent art pieces, that this was, in a way, just "one more" example of the wealth the royalty enjoyed. I'm sure, though, the real art afficionados...More

I have always loved the Faberge Eggs but seeing them and reading their stories were one of,the highlights of ourBaltic cruise. We did an add on evening tour with SPB Tours. Worth of every cent. So glad we went. Just amazingly beautiful.

Does anyone know if it is possible to leave Helsinki in the morning, get to St. Petersburg, see the eggs, and return that evening. I know, I know there is so much more to see and do in St. Petersburg, but I may not have the time. Thanks!

We took a train (Finnish train) from St. Petersburg to Helsinki. It took 4 hours one way. Check the train schedules and a taxi from the station to the Faberge place is only 10-15 mins.

We are going to the Faberge Museum on May 29 or 30. I see several people mention the importance of using a guide. Do they mean a guided tour or an audio guide? Is there an audio guide? I am most interested in the eggs but I am sure I will enjoy all of it. Also, are there about 10 eggs currently on display? Thank you.

We used an audio guide - it was very comprehensive
Can we take photographs of the inside of the museum?
