The buildings are a typical example of popular construction in the Pokuplje, Turopolje and Posavina regions. All are fitted out with traditional inventory, sorted by themes: agricultural tools, a cart-wright's and traditional footwear shop, a wedding with the bride's dress, means of working the flax, house inventory and a few flower gardens in which old-fashioned plants were grown.The museum was endangered by numerous artillery attacks from the nearby occupied territory.
The buildings were not protected. Parts of the museum holdings were stored in the safer rooms. The inventory list was also stored in a safe place.
September 1993During the fighting in the Pokuplje region, a courtyard between two houses received a direct hit. The blast damaged the roofs, dispersed and destroyed roof tiles and the upper and lower parts of the porch. The windowpanes and frames were broken.
Due to the blast and splinters of broken windowpanes, 98 items were destroyed or heavily damaged.
