Even if the Faberge Museum was one of the most recent museums to open in St. Petersburg in 2013, it has become one of the most famous. The unique collections presented to the public consist of the works by the famed jeweler, Carl Faberge. Thanks to the oligarch and patron Viktor Vekselberg, the Faberge Museum most notably showcases 9 Faberge eggs that belonged to the Imperial family. These eggs, formerly part of the collection owned by Malcolm Forbes, have a considerable cultural and historical value, and are also witnesses of the Russian master-jeweler’s creativity of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-centuries as much as they were the treasures of the last Romanov family.

Situated on the banks of the Fontanka River in the sumptuous Shuvalov Palace, which by itself merits a visit, the Faberge Museum presents an ornamental and decorative art collection as well as a collection of icons that formerly belonged to the Imperial family. From the original enamel egg created in the shape of a hen itself containing a an egg made of ruby that Alexander III presented to his wife in 1885 to the egg of The Order of St. George that Nicholas II presented to his mother in 1916, your guide will explain the histories of these cultural and historical treasures. You will learn more about the House of Faberge and the tradition of the Imperial eggs. Finally, you will discover the miniature gifts found in Faberge's eggs, from a miniature replica of the Imperial coach to a vial of vodka made from precious metals.

A museum in a sumptuous palace with a unique collection, a tour of the Faberge Museum is essential for anyone passionate about art or jewelry!
