The exhibit, In the Children's Rooms at the Alexander Palace has officially closed.
The exhibit which originally opened in June 2011 was set out in the former rooms of the children of Tsar Nicholas II on the second floor of the Alexander Palace. It was the first time in more than 80 years that visitors to the palace had access to these rooms.
The exhibit focused on the life of the Imperial children from the 19th to the early 20th century. Most of the exhibit, however, was devoted to the children of Tsar Nicholas II: the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, as well as the Tsarevich Alexei.
The exhibit included more than 200 items: paintings and graphic portraits, photographs, uniforms and dresses, books, toys, porcelain and furniture. Many of the items on display were being exhibited for the first time making this a truly unique exhibit.
