Emperor Nicholas II Autograph Museum in Novosibirsk is the only autograph museum in Russia, named after the late Russian emperor Nicholas II to whom the city owes its appearance on the world map.


The museum

The museum was founded in 1988 in Novosibirsk, Russia.

The Emperor Nicholas II Autograph Museum collects and studies handwriting specimens of world celebrities, past and present.
