State Historical Museum in Moscow to Host Nicholas II Exhibition in 2018
Topic: Nicholas II

 
This article was researched from Russian media sources and written by Paul Gilbert, Founder of Royal Russia © 2017

The State Historical Museum in Moscow have announced that they will host an exhibition on Emperor Nicholas II in 2018. The exhibit will be an historical portrait of Russia’s last emperor and tsar, marking both the 150th anniversary of his birth in 1868, and the 100th anniversary of his death in 1918.

The memorial exhibition is designed to show the family and ceremonial aspects of the life of Emperor Nicholas II. It will feature personal items, rare photographs, diaries, letters, among other documents, sculptures, portraits and graphics of both the monarch himself and members of his family. 

The exhibition, will span the fifty years of the emperor's life: from his birth at Tsarskoye Selo in 1868 to his death in Ekaterinburg in 1918. Special sections of the exhibition will be devoted to the most important dynastic events of his reign - including the coronation of Nicholas II (1896) and the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the Romanovs' house (1913). 

A section of the exhibition will be devoted to the emperor’s son and heir Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolaevich, the tragic fate of which left a mark on the life of the whole imperial family.
 
The final section of the exhibition will be dedicated to perpetuating the memory of Nicholas II, where for the first time a number of rare items from the Museum of the Memory of Nicholas II in Belgrade - which existed in the 1920-1930's - will be on display, and after the Second World War were added to the collection of the State Historical Museum.

The exhibition will run from July to October 2018 in the State Historical Museum in Moscow.
