Yekaterinburg Opens Memorable Museum of the Romanovs

The Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg) Regional Museum opens the museum in memory of the Romanov dynasty. The permanent exhibition features documents and exhibits related to life and death of the last Russian Emperor Nikolai II and his family.
      The exposition with its unique documents unveils the assassination of the tzar`s family and the circumstances of this crime.
      The visitors can also learn here about the history of the exploration of the development of the Ural region during the reign of the Romanov dynasty.
      The initiator of the museum is Alexander Avdonin, the head of the foundation Obreteniye (Discovery). It was he with his friends who found the remains of the Emperor`s family in Ganina Yama (Ganina Pit) in 1978. Later Alexander Avdonin went on with his research about life and death of the last Russian Emperor and provided part of the displays of the new museum.
