“A little disappointing”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Assumed there would be more eggs!! Bit expensive for what you see, but we enjoyed seeing the intricate work of Faberge.

“Interesting but limited artifacts”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

The museum is more a story of the Faberge business and the life of Faberge with only three eggs on display. However, the photos of Nicholas and Alexandra and the children are wonderful to see.
Also interesting to see Faberge's animal collection in a special exhibition at the museum.

“Where are the Eggs?”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

I had read about how this museum came to be so I had to go and support it for all its efforts to bring the designs of Fabergé. But I was looking for the eggs and the only ones I saw were reproductions in the gift shop. It is small but there are lovely things on display. It is a nice small museum. I enjoyed it.

“A waste of time and money”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We went to the Faberge museum with an expectation to see the brilliant work of this famous company, knowing that the fabulous eggs are shown in other museums. After buying the tickets 12 EUR for adult we saw 3 room on the second floor showing one egg, that can be seen also on the museum poster and some cigar boxes and medals. On the third floor there are only 3 dim rooms with some small animal statues. The entire tour took us no more than 10 minutes and when we leave the security guy told us that we can go to the garden, which can be seen from outside the museum house as well.
If you want to see the history of Faberge better search Internet and don't waste your money there.
