The Volyn Icon Museum provides a view of the unique regional Volyn icon-painting school of the 16th-18th centuries. The museum collection includes icons, items of church decorative carvings, and sculptures. The exhibits are arrayed in 8 exhibition halls.

More than 100 icon paintings present the diverse creative styles of professionals and folk masters. The development of the art form in Volyn is characterized by the work from different painting centers in the region. Works of the prominent Ukrainian artist Iov Kondzelevych are included in the collection.

Since 2000 the Volyn Icon Museum has become a destination for pilgrims: the collection includes the marvelous Chelm icon of the Blessed Virgin, the most ancient icon in Ukraine. The museum also hosts thematic meetings, presentations, chamber music concerts and clerical choral performances.
