Elisa, how did you find out about the exhibition in London?

Is there a board on this website that informs the public on up coming exhibitions?  If not, May be this site would be the place to inform Romanov enthusiasts.

What are the exact dates for the Santa Fe exhibition? Are there any other details that can be shared with the class? If the price is right and the timing is good, I maybe able to attend it.

Actually, I have posted them several times on several different threads. I am going from memory here, but I believe the dates are May 29 through September 5, 2004. Roughly Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. I only know about this because my sister, Laura May, is the voice of the Museums of New Mexico.

Apparently the Art museum has the exhibition, but virtually no budget to promote it. Thus there is no website and virtually no information regarding the exhibition on the web. The little information I do have comes from a press release Laura sent me. So, I don't know if it duplicates what has been shown in the US before.

All that being said, I think it would be great fun for a group of us to go. I'm thinking 5 days would be about right. If we go by train, there would be over one whole day just of travel.

Any suggestions on dates?

Candice. the Faberge exhibit was at the Queen's Gallery  at Buckingham Palace.  I think it may have closed by now. I saw it  posted but did not attend,  this past winter, it was much the same as one put on several years ago, but the new gallery is far superior to that one. I looked at the catalogue & thought "why bother?" Nothing really new.
Nick would know far more about it, I am sure.
Santa Fe, N.M. in the summer must be uncomrtably HOT. However, I am still trying to figure out a way .

I see the exhibition is going to Cincinnati, Ohio and Newark, New Jersey.  Is anyone planning to go to those?   I'm hoping to go to the one in Cincinnati.

Robert, if you choose to fly, go into Albuqueque instead of Santa Fe. It's only about an hour away and there are shuttles available for a reasonable price. Airfare is much more reasonable to Albuquerque, too. I'm currently getting quotes of about $315 round trip from San Jose to Albuquerque.

Robert_Hall, I'm afraid I've never seen the Faberger exhibit.  However I would like to know where the new gallery is located? I can get to London very easily as I live in the U.K.

Actually, it is in the same place as the old gallery ! Expanded, remodeled.  Just behind the Palace itself, down B.P Road. Before the royal Mews.
It would be best to purchase tickets beforehand, as the wait can be long. The gift shop is marvelous, however, if you can't make it to an exhibit.
I think it in the same place as the original chapel, which was bombed in WWII.

Hi Lisa and Lanie--

Am just catching up to this thread. I'm in the Orange County area, between L.A. and San Diego, and hopping the train might be doable, in terms of time and cost . . . just need to research this a bit.   How far from Lamy to Santa Fe, by the way? (And how funny that the Santa Fe Railroad doesn't go to Santa Fe! Yet another of life's anomalies!)

As part of a masterplan, a dependance of the Hermitage will be openend in Amsterdam on feb. 24th by his R.H. the Crownprince of Orange. (For public on feb. 28th).
It's the second dependance after London.

The first six exhibitions will be seated at "the Neerlandia
Building" and each one shall last for 5 months. Later this year there will be one about Nicholas and Alexandra. I'm thrilled, can't wait to see it!

As to be expected the whole Amsterdam Hermitage will be ready in 2007.  

So, if anyone of you is in the neighbourhood, come and
visit Amsterdam! Your welcome!  :D

You are quite welcome, Candice.
The V&A  also has a marvelous jewelry exhibit. It changes  a lot, sometimes is even closed !  But worth checking out.
Again, Nick is a better source than I.

Hello Almedingen !

I can fly to either Newark or Cincinatti as they are both nearer to Canada than Santa Fe. Do you know how long after January 2005 it will be in Cincinatti?

Joanna,

I think it is going to be there until May, which is good because I don't want to drive there in the winter time.  I plan to make a vacation out of it because Cincinnati seems to have a lot to do and see.  I'm so glad its coming to the Midwest and I don't have to travel to New Mexico. :)
