Few questions about the State Archive of the Russian Federation.

I know that IF's letters, pictures and diaries are archived there, but what else can be found?
How easy is it to find things?
How big the archive is?

The Alexander Palace / Museum of Ts S

An article in Finnish about the exhibition in Lappeenranta. I translated the part how items gone missing from Tsarskoe Selo's palaces are retrieved.

Collection grows despite lack of funds

The exhibition is a good proof how objects are traced and regained. The collection of Tsarskoe Selo’s museum is completing constantly, though slowly.

-Just a couple of days ago we got a call from the Norwegian consulat. An emigrant had taken an ornament from Tsarskoe Selo with him to Norway and his grandson had inherited it. Now we got it back as a donation, Iraida Bott rejoys.

Similar strikes of luck of luck happens every now and then. A couple of years ago the museum got back court painter Michály Zichy’s watercolour paitings, which had traveled from Tsarkoe Selo first to Germany and then to the United States.

-During the war a German officer had takenthem with him from the wall of Nicholas II’s room. Later he gave the watercolours to a Russian émigré family living in Germany, because he thought that they belonged to Russians. Later the family moved to America, and the descendants of the family decided to donate the paintings to us.

Donations are important, because museum’s resources to get back objects are limited. Museum uses yearly about 100 000 dollars to acquisitions.

-All that money comes from our own activities, we don’t get any support for this, Bott says.

The people from Tsarskoe Selo are seldom seen as buyers in art and antique auctions.

-When an item comes to an auction, which has the Tsarkoe Selo palace mark, its price rises so high, we usually don’t have any possibilities to acquire it to the museum.

-Despite that we are happy to find out, via the auction, that the object is safe though we don’t have it.
