About the exhibition
A world disrupted, shocked and changed forever
From the fall of Russia’s last Tsar to the rise of the first communist state, this definitive exhibition tells the extraordinary story of the Russian Revolution.
With rarely seen items from both sides of the conflict – from a first edition of the Communist Manifesto to anti-Bolshevik propaganda– this is a unique chance to understand the lesser-known personal stories behind the events that changed the world.
Bringing to life the hope, tragedy and myths of this seismic revolution, discover Russia 1917 – the biggest flame in a world on fire.
