The Last Tsar will explore the extraordinary life and death of Tsar Nicholas II and his family -- the last imperial monarch of Russia -- who once ruled over a sixth of the earth's land mass.

This fascinating exhibition will explore on the huge influence that medicine had on the Romanovs, from treating Tsarevich Alexei's haemophilia B — a rare blood condition that affected her mental health — to the role of their notorious spiritual adviser Rasputin.
