Fabergé Museum Tours

Housed in the suitably opulent Shuvalov Palace, the Fabergé Museum is a tribute to legendary Russian jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé. The St. Petersburg highlight showcases Russia’s treasured series of Fabergé eggs alongside a dazzling collection of Russian art, jewelry, and artifacts.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Fabergé Museum is ideal for art lovers and first-time visitors to Saint Petersburg.
  • Audio guides are available in several different languages.
  • The Fabergé Museum is accessible for wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The Fabergé Museum is located along the Fontanka River Embankment in downtown St. Petersburg, within walking distance of top attractions such as the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Mikhailovsky Castle (St. Michael’s Castle), and the State Russian Museum. The closest metro stations are Gostiny Dvor and Mayakovskaya, both on Line 3.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open from 10am to 9pm daily except Friday; tours run until 6pm. To avoid the crowds, opt for an early-morning visit on a weekday.

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.
