Tour Details

Your introduction to these famous eggs begins when you are picked up after dinner and transported to the intimate halls of the Shyvalovy-Naryshkiny Palace where the Faberge Museum is located. Enjoy a special, after-hours viewing of these breathtaking jeweled eggs at your own pace with an English audio self-guided tour. You will discover how they were created under the supervision of Peter Carl Faberge between 1885 and 1917, the most famous being the Imperial eggs that were commissioned by the Russian Tsars Alexander II and Nicholas II to present to their wives and mothers for Easter. This gesture set off a yearly tradition of Faberge Easter egg gifts that ended with the violent Russian Revolutions of 1917, bringing a tragic end to the Romanov family, the Faberge family fleeing Russia and many of the priceless eggs confiscated.

After your audio tour you can stay and enjoy the more than 3,000 pieces of artwork including special enamel cloisonné pieces and jewelry. You will also be able to view works from famous Russian artists like Ivan Aivosovsky and Konstantin Makovsky. This 4 hour small tour is a must-do for Faberge fans and art lovers! Sign up now.
