The Last Tsar: Blood and Revolution
Science Museum, London, until 24 March, www.sciencemuseum.org. uk/see-and-do/last-tsar-bloodand-revolution This exhibition explores a less frequently studied aspect of the lives of the Romanovs: that of science. Medicine played a huge role during Nicholas II’s reign, from his son Alexei’s rare condition of haemophilia to their belief in the healing powers of mystic Rasputin. Visitors can visit a recreated crime scene from their mysterious disappearance, see X-rays taken of the Tsar and Tsarina, as well as their personal possessions.
The Romanovs were allegedly executed on Lenin’s orders
