MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. A museum dedicated to the family of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II will open in the town of Tobolsk, Siberia’ Tyumen Region, in 2018, the press service of the regional governor said on Friday.
“We are planning to open the museum next spring. It will be dedicated to the life of the royal family in exile,” the press service said.
The family of Nicholas II was staying in Tobolsk between August 2017 and April 2018. After that, they were taken to Yekaterinburg and executed on July 17, 2018.
“The royal family stayed at the residence of the Tobolsk governor-general surrounded by a tall fence. They were allowed nothing but rare visits to the local Annunciation church where the Romanovs had to walk between two lines of soldiers,” the press service said.
The museum’s creation implies the restoration of the governor-general’s house using old photographs.
The museum will host cultural and educational events, the press service said.
