Guided tour - Russian Royal Dresses

Updated: Apr 13

April, 17th Saturday

11 am



You will see 18 gowns of empress Maria, a Danish princess and a wife of the tzar Alexander III. Her spectacular long-train ball dresses, modest outfits for official visits, a home robe, and also unbelievably narrow shoes, and whimsical hats are on display. We will talk about the royal family daily routine, court's habits and rules, responsibilities of valets, footmen, and “araps” - black-skinned lackeys.


A highlight of the show is the wedding outfits of Alexandra and Nicholas II - a richly embroidered silver brocade dress with swan fluff trimmed sleeves for her and a military uniform for him.


Especially touching exhibit is a dress of little princess Olga, their daughter who would be shot by the Bolsheviks in 1918.
