Romanov Chambers at Zaryadye Museum

Romanov Chambers at Zaryadye Museum (September 2011)

The Romanov Chambers at Zaryadye date from the 16th century and Mikhail Romanov, the first Romanov Tsar, was born here. In 1856 Emperor Alexander II ordered that the ancestral estate of his dynasty be restored and in 1859 it was opened as a museum. It remains open as a museum today, having survived the Soviet period as a museum of ancient Russian life.

The chambers are divided into men's and women's sections and its interiors are beautifully decorated in the original style. In addition the museum displays monuments of 15th - 17th century Muscovite civil life. The museum is run as a branch of the State Historical Museum.
