The museum is housed in a former cheese dairy, in operation from 1883 to 1967, and retains various pieces of equipment - utensils, churns, vats and so on - from that period. But it also exhibits many items which give a more general idea of life in the area as it was in the past, sometimes the fairly recent past. One room is taken up with a mid-19th century herdsman's wooden dwelling, ingeniously re-erected inside the museum by removing the front and displaying it separately, (see pictures). There are also the personal touches of, for instance, a shepherd's ornate crook (of which he would evidently be very proud), an alpine herdsman's universal back-pack - quite an item to have to carry! - and a dairymaid's Sunday dress from the 1930s. All this is backed up with original photographs of the area and people.
