The Governor's Mansion at Tobolsk
The restoration of the former governor's mansion at Tobolsk will begin this summer, and will include a recreation of the historical interiors. Up until recently the only room open to the public was that of the study of the last Russian tsar.
The mansion housed Tsar Nicholas II and his family from August 1917 to February 1918 after being sent into exile. The Imperial family took eight rooms in the mansion for their personal use on their first floor. Rooms for the servants and a dining room were located on the ground floor.
The restored rooms of the mansion will house an extended museum dedicated to the Russian tsar and his family, and their months of exile at Tobolskbefore being exiled to the Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg.
