The Heritage Museum
The other day we went to the Heritage Museum to see the Faberge collection. Wow! It was so interesting to take a peek into the life of the Russian Tsars and Tsarina. There were some really gorgeous things. Intricately designed eggs enclosing music boxes, gold trains and other finely decorated things. There was a robe trimmed with Ermine and coronation pieces as well as a small dance card and things from long forgotten balls. I think I liked the miniature portraits of the families such as the bracelet that had little lockets all the way around. I also enjoyed the opening pansy with the paintings of the Tsar Nicholas II and his kids. No one should ever forget their story nor the story of their daughter Anastasia truth or fiction. I could not take photos but wish to share this trip anyway.
