THE LAST TSAR : BLOOD AND REVOLUTION at the Science Museum

18th September 2018

Dear All

You might be interested in this exhibition at the Science Museum

THE LAST TSAR : BLOOD AND REVOLUTION 21 September 2018 – 24 March 2019e: 21 September 2018 – 24 March 2019

Explore the extraordinary lives and deaths of Tsar Nicholas II and his family and go behind the scenes to uncover the science behind one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century.

 

Rulers of a sixth of the surface of the Earth, the last imperial monarchs of Russia, the Romanovs, enjoyed lives that glittered with unimaginable wealth and power but the family mysteriously disappeared in 1918.

 

Set against a turbulent backdrop of social upheaval and war between 1900 and 1918, this fascinating exhibition will explore the huge influence of medicine on the imperial family during this period, from the young Tsarevich Alexei’s haemophilia B—a rare blood condition passed down from Queen Victoria—to the Tsarina’s mental health, and the influence of doctors as well as spiritual advisers including the infamous mystic Rasputin.

Discover the private lives of the Tsar and Tsarina and their children through unique artefacts, documents and photographs never before on public display in the UK, examine the crime scene and learn more about the advances in medical and forensic science which would transform the investigation into their brutal deaths.

 

This is the story of the century-long investigation into one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century.

 

Best wishes

Ute
