Housed inside the old San Girolamo Monastery from the second half of the 16th century. Exhibits from various periods are on display, some hundreds of years old, divided into themed sections that represent the heritage of the local rural civilization:

- religious section, with exhibits from 1500 onwards and the adjacent monastery church;
- trades and crafts: shoemaking and cobbling, weaving, needlework, schools, winemaking;
- pastimes and leisure, with the music room, cinema, tavern, comics and toys.

The section dedicated to nativity scenes also includes an 18th-century Lombardy nativity scene, another one carved in wood by hand, and a mechanical crib recreating a local street in the post-war years.

Gardens with 90 fruit trees and a workshop on medicinal herbs.
Marquetry, weaving, embroidery, needlework and pottery courses.
