Faberge Museum

Faberge egg

The Faberge Museum in Saint Petersburg displays modest but exceptionally beautiful collection. You can see nine Imperial Easter Eggs created by Fabergé for the last two Russian emperors. There was a tradition in Imperial Russia to gift your wife or mother a Faberge Egg with a surprise miniature inside for Easter.

But actually the most sold items were the tabacco boxes, because they were a symbol of status.

In addition to works by Fabergé, the collection also includes works by his contemporaries, including famous Russian jewelers and silversmiths such as Sazikov, Ovchinnikov, Khlebnikov, Rückert and many others.

It is a small museum but with a very interesting collection and not less impressive interiors. There are guided tours every hour , but only one in English, but you can go whenever and rent an audio guide. One hour would be enough to explore the displays in the Faberge Museum.

And checkout the Museum Shop.
