Located to the south of the Kremlin complex, the Armoury is one of Moscow's oldest museums and displays jewellery, state regalia and weaponry.
The Armoury was always a place that had to do with exclusive, important and extravagant collections. It served as the work place of the country's best gunsmiths, jewellers and painters. When they were shifted to St. Petersburg, the Armoury became an elaborate treasure house. Even more treasures were added after the Bolshevik revolution. Today the Armoury serves as a hugely popular and the official museum of the Kremlin. It houses the Russian Diamond Fund and has a rare and exorbitant collection. The precious items on display from the royal history of Russia include Imperial Crown of Russia, the ivory throne of Ivan the Terrible, the Orloff Diamond, 12th century necklaces from Ryazan, the sabres of Kuzma Minin and Dimitri Pozharski, Manomakh's Cap among numerous others. The museum is also home to splendid works of applied arts from all over Europe and of course, imperial weapons, armour and carriages.
