This is amazing collection of the diamonds, you just can't stop look at them. A tip for tourist not from Russia, you can get the tickets inside of the museum and get in very fast.

Impressive collection of diamonds, gold and precious stones, visit should not take more than 45 minutes and you can visit it together with The Armory. You are not allowed to take pictures inside.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.

Yes, that;s correct and it's the only way to get the tickets. Go up into the armory and the diamond fun is up there with guards out front and a ticket desk. Buy them there.
