The HKU Museum Society is pleased to organise a guided tour of Tsar of All Russia. Holiness and Splendour of Power with two professional docents. The exhibition will run until August 29 at the HKHM, last chance to join us for it!

The exhibition will showcase 170 sets of imperial artefacts from the collection of the Moscow Kremlin Museums, including staffs, holy relics, harnesses, weapons, articles from foreign diplomats, ornaments worn by queens and toys of princes. By illustrating the life of the Russian court, namely the monarch coronation ceremony, ceremonial departure, military power, diplomacy and court life from the 16th to 18th centuries, the exhibition demonstrates how the political, religious and cultural environment of that era created the glorious monarchy of the Tsar of All Russia.

The exhibition is jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Moscow Kremlin Museums and jointly organised by the HKHM and the Moscow Kremlin Museums. Solely sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
