The museum is set up in an ex-farmhouse situated on the bank of the torrent Erci in the regional agricultural forestry complex "Giogo - Casaglia". The place is characterized by its environmental and naturalistic qualities. A characteristic and substantial collection of documentary material on the old farming and country life in the Mugello Area is found here. The material is relevant to real farming activities such as cattle - raising, farming and working the land, harvesting and trashing works carried out in the cellars, in the granaries and in the mills. Particular interest is given to the works done in the house such as spinning and weaving, doing the washing in the kitchen, to handicrafts done by the farmers and to various trades of carpenters, cartwrights, coopers, shoemakers, blacksmiths and masons.
The reconstruction of the bedroom, the cellar, the kitchen together with the sections dedicated to works in the woods, to popular religious activities, to carts and other means of transport, to works made in wood, and to school, share-farming and photographic documents complete the expositive picture carried out with intent and evocative but above all with a vast and accurate documentation.
