The museum was opened in May 2013 and aims to research the culture of Carpathian 'polonynas' (mountain valleys), the place of extensive work for local shepherds. There is a complex dedicated to the whole cirle of milk processing with turning it into cheese, vurda and brynza.
It's also a place for trying out one of alternative types of medical treatment, the ovitherapy (treatment with sheep products).
The main building in the complex is 'Staia'. It consists of two parts: the central one represents the everyday life of local shepherds and displays some basic equipment for milk processing (utensils, clothing); the other room is a traditional local pantry displaying everyday items and various tools.
The museum hosts workshops on wool processing, from sheep shearing to the final stage of making wool products. Guided tours and other events are also available.
