Pyotr Stolypin Commemorated in Petersburg
Pyotr Stolypin

The exhibition Hope of the Tsar dedicated to the 150th anniversary since the birth of the outstanding politician P.A. Stolypin has been opened in the Konyushenny Building of the Yelagin Island Palace Museum. 

      The exhibition is supposed to become the final stage in the program of anniversary events and the largest project dedicated to this memorial date. Yelagin Ostrov (Island) is one of the few memorial addresses of Pyotr Stolypin in St. Petersburg. In 1906 after an attempt on the Aptekarsky Island, Stolypin and his family were transported here. 

      The exposition has been created on the basis of materials from over 15 to 20 archives and museums of the Russian Federation. Some documents and exhibits are displayed for the first time. 

      State-of-the-art multimedia technologies, among them interactive ones, have been actively employed in the exhibition. One of the interactive exhibits is a model of Yelagin Island which helps better know the history and understand its role at the period when Pyotr Stolypin with the family lived there. 

      The exhibition runs till December 15.
