Arsenal in Tsarskoe Selo & Billiards Room in the Winter Palace
The Arsenal in the Alexander Park in Tsarskoe Selo has been exquisitely restored by the State Museum Preserve – Tsarskoe Selo.
On the Alexander Palace Forum, Cathy has posted links to a video on the opening of the Arsenal Museum and links to beautiful photographs of the interior.

I am in awe the restoration work by the museum staff in Tsarskoe Selo!

I am curious if any of the swords, etc. now on display in the Arsenal were originally in Alexander II’s Billiards Room in the Winter Palace (photo below). [http://winterpalaceresearch.blogspot.ca/2016/09/billiards-in-winter-palace.html]
