Really good experience

It was our first time in Moscow. My daughter and I each had a Moscow CityPass and were thrilled with every venue we visited. But you must plan your trip. It made the trip a lot easier knowing all your admissions were taken care of ahead of time and the information in the book was very informative. Ups: Saves a good amount of money and includes good extras on restaurants, book, map, etc. Downs: you still have to do the line in most of the places, as the tickets need to be printed.
