Exhibition Description

Featuring over 200 exquisite items on loan from the Tsarskoye Selo State Museum-Preserve of Russia, including paintings, costumes, porcelain, weapons and works of art, this exhibition introduces the history and culture of Russia under the Romanov dynasty from the early 18th to the early 20th century. Exhibit highlights include decorative items from Tsarskoye Selo produced by various imperial manufactories in Russia, diplomatic gifts presented to Russia from foreign royal houses and a richly decorated carriage used during the coronation of the Russian monarchs. The exhibition aims to give visitors a greater insight into the splendour of Russian court life and into the broader political and cultural developments in Russia's history that Tsarskoye Selo has borne witness to.
