The museum is housed in a residential building from the end of the 14th century located in the historic center of Bratislava, close to Michael Gate.

The museum was established thanks to volunteers and art connoisseurs as well as private collections. Exhibition activities focus particularly on Constructivist and Neo- constructivist tendencies in visual arts.

The permanent exhibition of work of Milan Dobeš and permanent collection of international constructivism is displayed on three floors. The fourth floor presents temporary exhibitions.

Museum was founded with the European Cultural Society Foundation. At present, the museum is owned by an engineering holding VÍTKOVICE MACHINERY GROUP, which provides funds and management to the museum.
