Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg is the first privately owned museum in Russia of national signification.
The museum holds the world's largest collection of Carl Fabergé masterpieces and an exceptional collection of Russian decorative arts, which today contain more than 4000 works and are considered to be one of the best collections in the world.
The most famous items in Fabergé Museum are the nine Easter Eggs created for Alexander III and Nicholas II, the last of the Russian Emperors. These exquisite pieces are not only examples of the highest artistic skill in jewelery, they are historic testimonials that give insight into the lives of Russia's Imperial Family.
The collection includes all the directions in which the House of Fabergé worked: objects of fantasy, jewellery, silverware, interior and religious objects.
Visitors can see this unique collection in the exquisite rooms of Shuvalov Palace, home of Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg. The palace located at Fontanka Embankment 21 was built at the end of the 18th century. From 2006 through 2013, the Link of Times Historical and Cultural Foundation began restoration of the Shuvalov Palace, where the Fabergé Museum is located today. It was the first complex restoration of the Palace in more than 200 years that allowed it to be adapted for modern use.
