Fabergé Museum

21, Fontanka River Embankment, St Petersburg, Russia

The Basics

An admission ticket for the Fabergé Museum includes full access to the museum’s 12 exhibition halls, which contain over 4,000 items such as silverware, porcelain, icons, and Russian impressionist paintings. Nine Fabergé eggs are the star attraction, of course, but other notable finds include enamel pieces by Pavel Ovchinnikov, military artworks by Karl Piratskiy and Pyotr Ivanovich Balashov, and Fabergé clocks, jewelry, and diamond-encrusted trinket boxes.

You can explore the museum on a guided or self-guided tour, or combine a visit to the Fabergé Museum with a city tour of St. Petersburg. Entrance is included with a St. Petersburg CityPass.

2-day Private Shore Excursion of St Petersburg with Faberge Museum
We were very satisfied with the tour guide and all arrangements for our 2-day itinerary in Saint Petersburg. The driver was very accommodating and the mercedes car was spotless. A hand sanitizer was offered to us. Traveling privately without having to follow a tour group felt great and safe. It was a memorable trip that we would definitely repeat.

Relaxed 2-Day Shore Excursion in St Petersburg with Faberge Museum
We were very pleased with this tour. It was a jam packed 2 days and we were able to see a lot without being hurried. If you only visit Russia once in a lifetime, this tour is well worth the time and expense.

Luxurious 2 Day St Petersburg Tour with Faberge Museum
The private tour with Ludmila tours in Saint Petersburg for 2 days was excellent choice. Our guide Kristina was superb. She defiantly loves and knows Saint Petersburg. By the end of the second day she managed to infect us with her passion. Highlight of our tour was Hermitage, make sure that you will not miss it.

Fabergé Eggs

Born in St. Petersburg, Peter Carl Fabergé was a talented jeweler who was appointed to serve the Russian court in 1885. In over 35 years of Tsarist patronage, Fabergé and his diamond cutters and goldsmiths created 54 gold eggs to mark significant occasions, from coronations to royal weddings. Following the assassination of the Romanovs in 1918, the Bolsheviks stole the imperial jewelry collection, and Fabergé fled to Lausanne, Switzerland, where he died two years later.

In more recent years, Russia has been quietly buying back its cultural heritage, and in 2013 opened the Fabergé Museum to house its collection of nine eggs (the largest collection in the world). Highlights of the collection include the first egg that Fabergé created in 1885—for Tsar Alexander III as a gift for his wife, Empress Maria Feodorovna.
