An exhibition entitled “The Royal Family: A History in Images,” that intends to commemorate 81 years of history by means of photographs, presenting the members of the Royal family not only in official situations, but also in moments of their private lives, will be opened on Friday, May 8, at the National History Museum of Romania (MNIR). The 1,500 exhibits presented to visitors will also include, according to the General Manager of the institution, dr. Crisan Museteanu, art objects, paintings and sculptures representing the members of the Royal family. The owner of a great collection of photographs and postcards illustrating the life of the Royal family, MNIR intends to capture the interest of the audience by the novelty of the images. The institution is supported in this approach by the former Royal residences: The National Art Museum of Romania, the “Peles” National Museum, the “Cotroceni” National Museum, the “Bran” National Museum, as well as by the “King Ferdinand” National Military Museum, the “Dimitrie Gusti” National Village Museum and the National Philatelic Museum, institutions that cooperated to the organization of this project. MNIR has frequently initiated projects – exhibitions, symposiums or round tables – that presented information on important personalities of the national history (Ion I. C. Bratianu, I. Gh. Duca, Cornbeliu Coposu, King Carol I, etc.) The exhibition will be opened during May 8 – June 15 at the National History Museum of Romania.
