The exhibit in honour of the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty has been organized by Mrs. Olga Kulikovsky, the widow of Tihon Kulikovsky (1917-1993), the eldest son of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna.

The exhibit will run until June 7th at the Poklevskii-Kozell House, a branch of the Sverdlovsk Regional Museum, and reopen in the Patriarchal Compound, next to the Church on the Blood from June 10th to July 28th. From Ekaterinburg, the exhibit will then move to Tobolsk.
