Museums, exhibitions

This exhibition describes life at the Tsarskoye Selo residence from February to October 1917, during the period between two revolutions. The time when the age of monarchy draws to a close and a new age, full of revolutionary fervour, rises in its place. The Tsarskoye Selo residence still exists, but has lost its imperial status. The last Russian Emperor and his family still live in Alexander Palace, but he is now Citizen Romanov and is under house arrest by the order of the Russian Provisional Government. In the spring of 1917, the Tsarskoye Selo imperial palaces are being surveyed by an art and history commission tasked with inventorying nationalized property and creating a museum out of the past residence.
