The collections

The collections have taken shape thanks to permanent and temporary donations from a large number of neighbours of the region. At the moment, collections in the museum are divided into three sections: household objects, farming tools and other equipment related to craft industry and services. Only objects and tools belonging to household and farm objects are shown at the permanent exhibition, while the rest are kept in the warehouse of the museum to be exhibited according to the different programmes of temporary exhibitions as well as for investigation purposes.
