The museum is housed in the former residence of the sculptor Frederic Storck and of his wife, the painter Cecilia Cutescu-Storck. The building, designed in Anglo-Norman style is the work of the architect A. Clavel, and it was built in 1913. The main façade is decorated with stone ornamental motifs (belts, frames, bas-reliefs) by Frederic Storck.
The interior holds several mural paintings, by Cecilia Cutescu-Storck. The collections include graphics, paintings and sculptures by Karl, Carol, Frederic Storck and Cecilia Cutescu Storck. Karl Storck (1826 – 1887), the first professor sculpture of the Fine Arts Academy in Bucharest, the founder of the artistic dynasty by the same name, is represented by works and scale-models for public forum monuments. Carol Storck (1854 – 1926) the eldest son of the artist, is, in his turn, represented by several portraits, nudes, bronze and marble heads, medals, plaques and numismatic items. The rich selection of works by Frederic Storck (1872 – 1924), the youngest son of the family, comprises a wide range of portraits, nudes, bronze and marble heads, medals, plaques, and numismatic items. Cecilia Cutescu-Storck’s creation is also richly illustrated by many drawings, oils, mural decoration panels.
