The interior of the building reveals material and spiritual culture of Istra, Brkini, Čičarija and the Upper Karst from the 17th century onwards. Here a number of diversely structured settlements in the typical stone cultural landscape and some special architectural features are also displayed. The stone articles as used at home and at work as well as the skilfully hewn architectural details and individual sculptures have all come from a stonecutting workshop. A special place was allotted to the middle-class kitchen typical of the Mediterranean region. In the inner courtyard, some articles made of limestone and flysch are exhibited, while smith's-cartwright's workshop is presented in the ceiled shed.
In 1983, the building was reconstructed by the Regional Institute for the Conservation of Natural and Cultural Heritage Piran.
