The Museum of Lutsk Exaltation of the Cross Brotherhood is housed at the old former Brotherhood monastery building.  The museum presents the work of the Brotherhood, which united dukes and nobility, city and village citizens for the Orthodox revival in Volyn.

Documents and art works of the Volyn artists, especially portraits of the most famous brotherhood members - Bishop Fanasii Puzyna, icon painter Iov Kondzelevych, public figure Danylo Bratkovskii, for example - are displayed in this museum. Household items, old printed documents and furniture which were used by the monastery are kept at the museum. The entire exposition is decorated by interesting and rare illustrations.  The museum also holds church items from the Volyn Ethnography Museum.

The old printed documents, taken from the Brotherhood library, are of special importance. These are documents about financial operations of Lutsk Brotherhood and about measurements and dimensions of the Lutsk Exaltation of the Cross Brotherhood School and also the very thick walls of the Brotherhood monastery...
