New Exhibit Showcases Rare, Previously Unseen Photos of Romanov Family

The Science Museum's exhibition marks 100 years since the murders of the family members.


It has been 100 years since Tsar Nicholas II, Tsarina Alexandra, their five children Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia, and Tsarevich Alexei were executed in the basement of a mansion in Ural Mountains, along with four of their servants. Since then, the Romanov murders have been a source of intrigue. Some believe that one of the daughters may have escaped the attack.

Now, the Science Museum in London opened an exhibit about the Romanovs, called The Last Tsar: Blood and Revolution. The exhibition focuses on the role of science and medicine in the family’s lives and death. The exhibit includes rare artifacts and never-before-seen photographs of the family between the years of 1908 and 1918. These photos come from two albums that were created by Herbert Galloway Stewart, an English tutor to the Tsar’s nephews.

In the pictures, you see the royals playing in the snow and on a hunting trip. The albums were found by Dr. Natalia Sidlina, a Science Museum curator.
