The purpose of the museum is to highlight cultural heritage, to perpetuate folk culture, and to illustrate Kastorian hospitality.
On the first floor are the everyday room and the summer bedroom and on the second floor the main sitting room and the winter bedroom. They display a rich collection of womens and mens clothing (mainly formal local costumes), underwear, needlework and embroidery, handwoven textiles, and a rich collection of family photographs and womens portraits from Kastorian communities abroad. All the exhibits date to the 19th and early 20th century. On the ground floor there is quite a rich collection of domestic utensils.
