The two-storey building with its interior yard presents a variety of particularly interesting architectural details. The collections in the Museum come from donations and purchases and include among others hand-woven textiles, tools for the art of weaving, embroideries, lacework, ceramics, baskets, items of metalwork, coins, costumes and historical relics.
One of the rooms is dedicated to traditional farming and the traditional way of preparing bread in Rethymno, while in another room traditional professions are referred to. The artefacts are exhibited in units and are equipped with explanatory labels in both Greek and English, photographs and drafts according to the demands of a modern museum management.
