Exhibition in the Children's Rooms of the Alexander Palace
Topic: Alexander Palace

The Tsarskoye Selo State Museum, in cooperation with the Art and Pedagogical Toy Museum in Sergiyev Posad, the Obratztsov Puppet Theatre and the Ostankino Museum-Estate (Moscow) will join efforts in hosting In the Children's Rooms of the Alexander Palace starting June 2, 2011.

Set out in the former rooms of the last tsar's children on the second floor of the Alexander Palace, this exhibition will tell about the life of the children of Russian Emperors at Tsarskoye Selo, from Nicholas I's to Nicholas II's reign.

On display will be over 200 items, including toys, dolls, puppets, and other personal items belonging to the August children of the Russian Imperial family. Many of them are unique and put on display for the first time. Of particular interest are the authentic toys of the children of Tsar Nicholas II, including a rare French porcelain doll, which belonged to the grand duchesses, as well as an Indian wigwam and canoe, that once belonged to the Tsarevich Alexei.

This is the first time that visitors to the Alexander Palace will have access not only to the former children's rooms, but also to the second floor of the palace.

The exhibition opens on June 2, 2011, 10.00-17.00 daily, except Tuesdays and the last Wednesday of each month. An exhibition catalogue (in Russian) will be available for purchase.
