Is the word "impressive of" an appropriate preposition? Do you think the sentence is correct:

The museum is impressive of its design.

Can I make a sentence this way or correct me please.

    No, but perhaps: The design of the museum is impressive. This reorders the same words, except its is changed to the. – Weather Vane Aug 24 '18 at 22:32

    "The museum is impressive in its design." – user3169 Aug 25 '18 at 0:39

No. "impressive" doesn't take a complement with "of". This question is currently the second Google result for "impressive of". The other top Google results with "impressive of" are using the construction "most [adjective] of [collective noun]" such as "the most impressive of all the desert monasteries".
