The galaxy of Faberge masterpieces in the centre of St. Petersburg

The Fabergé Museum, located at the Shuvalov Palace, 21 Fontanka Canal, is one of the newest museums in St. Petersburg. It hosts a fabulous collection of Faberge eggs, which, with over 1,500 choice pieces, surpasses the collection of the Moscow Kremlin Armoury Museum.

The museum is a centrepiece for some of Fabergé’s most famous creations, such as the Imperial Coronation Egg which was created in 1897 by Fabergé workmasters Mikhail Perkhin and Henrik Wigstrom.

The museum also holds a galaxy of other items made by Fabergé, including some of the 200 spectacular objects formerly owned by the New York Forbes family.
