Aleksandrovskii Dvorets: V Gostyakh na Detskoi Polovine (In the Children's Rooms of the Alexander Palace)

description:

Catalog accompanying the 2011 exhibit of the children's rooms on the upper floor of the Alexander Palace. Illustrated with 16 color and black and white images. Includes articles by T. Butyrina of the Tsarskoe Selo Museum Preserve and A. Grekov, director of Moscow's toy museum.

 
Title in Russian:
Александровский Дворец: В Гостях на Детской Половине

unique features:

Crisp, vibrant reproductions of four watercolors of the children's rooms painted in 1931: Aleksei's classroom, the playroom, and two views of Olga & Tatiana's bedroom.

similar to:

Na Detskoi Polovine (Toys of the Tsar's Children) Nicholas and Alexandra: At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family

in my opinion:

Pales in comparison to Na Detskoi Polovine (Toys of the Tsar's Children), yet still an attractive souvenir piece.
