In 1996 in the former Poor Clares Church there was opened the Museum of Lviv Sacral Baroque Sculpture "Johann Georg Pinsel Creative Work". At the end of the 1750s he created the sculptural ensemble on St. George Cathedral in Lviv, worked in Lviv St. Martin Church, in Monastyrys'ka in Ternopil region. The altar from the church of Hodovytsya village near Lviv*** is the brightest work as concerns the emotional influence. In 1761 the sculptor died.
