The exhibition organizers chose the costumes making accent not only on their decorative but first on their sacred, protective and symbolic functions. In addition, they completed the exhibition by photograps from the well-known album of Ivan Honchar called “Ukraine and Ukrainians”. Among them there are photo portraits of such renowned Ukrainians as Mykhailo Grushevsky, Ivan Franko, Olena Pchilka, Lesya Ukrainka, Oksana Petrusenko, Kateryna Bilokur, Bayko sisters, V’yacheslav Chornovil and Ivan Honchar — the Museum Founder.
