The Moscow Kremlin Museum-Preserve is well known in the USA as an organizer of a series of successful exhibitions and as an honoured participant of various Russian and international exhibition projects. "The Majesty of the Tsars. Treasures from the Moscow Kremlin" exhibition project, organized in Las Vegas and dedicated to Moscow Tsardom of the XVIth-XVIIth centuries, is an eminent event in the history of cultural contacts between Russia and America.
The exhibits, wonderful jewelry artworks, weapons and arms, horse harness, icon-painting, artistic weaving and embroidery give an idea of the image of a Russian tsar and court life of medieval Russia. No other museum of the world could present it brighter and better than the unique collection of the Kremlin Museum, formed on the base of Moscow Great Princes' and Russian Tsars' treasury. For centuries, in the Kremlin, ancient residence of higher rulers of the state, symbols of power, historical rarities, precious secular and church ceremonial objects, those created in the state Kremlin workshops as well as those brought to Moscow from the largest artistic Oriental and European centers, have been carefully preserved here. The museum items of the display, presenting the unique collection, allow American visitors to see the past of Ancient Rus.
