Museum is a portrait of the National Art Museum of Ukraine, the gray neoclassical building that stores, preserves and exhibits Ukrainian art and Ukrainian history as well.

For half a year filmmakers observed and documented the inner life of the museum – from installation and subsequent removal of the exhibition of the XVII century icons from the communist demolished monastery to the exhibition of Alexander Bogomazov, the unknown to the world genius of Ukrainian avant-garde.

The narrative arc of the film goes from the Ukrainian Baroque to the Ukrainian avant-garde and echoes both the story of the Ukrainian art and the history of Ukraine.
