The basis of choice of the of the works for the collection do not follow a single style, but it is captivated by freedom, originality and craftsmanship, as stated by Michail Ovchinnikov, director of the museum. The ambitious project is housed in a striking yellow building with white columns that has been divided into two wings – the right wing houses the gallery, and the left the museum. The building has undergone a complete overhaul to transform it into a modern space for its new contents. It is hard to miss, juxtaposed opposite the tired-looking Soviet Palace of Culture. The building include the museum exposition and different galleries, media halls, a cafè for chilling out and for artists presentations, a souvenir shop and a restaurant.
