Ordynat pochłonięty odbudową folwarków i okradany przez niektórych nieuczciwych zarządców, nie był w stanie w okresie największego nasilenia kryzysu gospodarczego łożyć na Muzeum, wobec czego instytucja ta, będąca chlubą Lwowa i nauki polskiej, wchodziła w latach 1924-1933 w rozpaczliwą fazę upadku.
