The museum was opened in 1991 as a department of Lviv National museum. It is situated in the former village priest's house. Just here Kornylo Ustyianovych, the famous ukrainian artist and public figure, was born in the family of the priest Mykola Ustyianovych, a widely-known writer and poet.
The museum exposition can be divided into sections about Mykola Ustyianovych, about Kornylo Ustyianovych with copies of his pictures and about Frantyshek Rzhehozh — a Czech ethnographer who lived in Vovkiv.
The museum territory, occupying one hectare of the old garden, creates a specifically cozy atmosphere for the visitors here.

It houses the folk clothes, agricultural implements, kitchen utensils, trunks, etc. The part of the former threshing barn is used now as a meeting hall. And in the kitchen with the old oven the visitors are invited for local tea or milk.
