The art deco museum was founded in December 2014 at the initiative of Mkrtich Okroyan, an entrepreneur and patron of the arts. The museum boasts one of the largest collections of sculptures, furniture, and decorative and applied arts in the art deco style.
The major part of the exhibition is a collection of bronze and ivory sculptures dating back to the 1920s and 1930s - more than 900 works in total. Among them there are over 100 works by Demetre Chiparus (1886-1947), one of the top masters in decorative sculpture of that era, Ferdinand Preiss, Paul Philippe, Otto Poertzel, Pierre Le Faguays, Claire Colinet, and Bruno Zach.
The museum boasts a rich collection of art deco furniture. Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Jules Leleu, Paul Follot, Louis Sue and Andre Mare are renowned designers from that time.
Recently the museum collection was enlarged by art nouveau furniture, works of Louis Majorelle, Emile Galle, Karl Albert Angst and Maison Diot
