The collection of the museum is dedicated to the architecture, the way of living and different activities and habits of the people from these mountain regions. It is possible to visit two households from the 19th century, which are composed of main buildings where families used to live and additional facilities which were used as workshops for production of dairy products, keeping the animals and storing agricultural products. All of the facilities are furnished with original furniture, tools and household objects from that period so that the visitors can comprehend more easily the way of life of the people who lived in these households and the enormous effort that was made for producing the products that can be easily found on the supermarket shelves nowadays.
