The Russian Empire, the empire that existed from 1721 until 1917, was one of the largest empires in world history, stretching over three continents. The Empire is famous for its two dominators. Peter the Great, the Empire’s first emperor, created a golden age. Catherine the Great, the country’s longest-ruling female leader, was arguably the most renowned.

The exhibition “Golden Age: The Treasures of the Russian Empire” presents 302 exhibits (piece/set) from the State Historical Museum of Russia. These exhibits are the best witnesses of the 200-year history of the Russian Empire. There are portraits, sculptures and costumes of the emperors or empresses, porcelain, glasswork, gold and silver ware of the royal family, luxurious jewelry, as well as certificates, silver spoons with inscription, and gold coins that show the trade contacts between China and Russia. This exhibition will sure provide you a visual feast of army and government, etiquette and artistic life in the Russian Empire.
