1917. Romanovs & Revolution. The End of Monarchy

This will be the only showing of the exhibition in Western Europe. It includes over 250 items from the collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the State Archive of the Russian Federation in Moscow, and the Artillery Museum in St Petersburg. Using films, photographs, paintings, objets d’art and historical documents, the show tells the gripping story of fashionable St Petersburg and the art that flourished there in the early 20th century, of Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra, and of the explosive political and social circumstances of their reign. Visitors will see and hear how choices and decisions made by the tsar made revolution inevitable and spelled the inescapable end of the 300-year Romanov monarchy in Russia. Visitors will also gain moving and intimate insights into the final years of the imperial family, ending in their murder. The year 1917: the ultimate turning point in the history of Russia.
