    Default the museum was meant to dispose of

    Could anyone tell me the meaning of the underlined part?

    There is no escaping the very problem that the museum was meant to dispose of, because the museum brings to light precisely the factor that the unified collection of works sought to overcome - namely, the historical relativity of taste.

    that the museum was intended/planned to eliminate.

    It was thought that the museum would be able to solve the problem, but the problem clearly remains.
