Located in an 18th century Baroque palace, the Dezider Milly Gallery features an exhibition tracing the development of visual arts among folk and professional artists of Ruthenian and Ukrainian origin from the 16th century until the contemporary times.  

The exhibition venue consists of nine rooms. The focal point of the entrance hall is a wooden sculpture with a bronze bust presenting the national artist and academic painter, Dezider Milly. The sculpture was made by Ján Kulich. Among the collected artefacts, particularly worth seeing is a precious collection of icons.

The building housing the gallery, previously a manor house, was built at the end of the 13th century in the late Baroque style.  It is the oldest building in Svidník, named on the State List of Monuments.  It was reconstructed and opened as a museum in 1983.
