If you have time to visit the building with the diamond fund, you will be amazed! The collection is one of a kind. It reveals some of the wonderful history of Russia. Well worth every kopek of the admission price.

This museum(?) houses many of Russia's prized gems and I relate it to USA's Fort Knox. It is unfortunate that picture taking is not allowed for some of the jewelry are unbelievable.

Normal price for each adult is 400 or 500 Rubles however this gives a discount for any student (even international) and the cost is 100 rubles only.

There were so many diamond and gold accessories in this place. The audio guide was free of charge and a must to enjoy the sights.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.

Yes, that;s correct and it's the only way to get the tickets. Go up into the armory and the diamond fun is up there with guards out front and a ticket desk. Buy them there.
