The museum has an archaeological collection, the Stojan Aralica memorial collection, a Patriotic War collection, a cultural and historical collection, as well as an ethnographic collection. The museum holdings are valuable, but the permanent display has been improvised, because the museum has no professional staff.From 1991 to 1995 the museum was endangered by being in the immediate vicinity of the occupied territory.
