The museum functions in an edifice dating from the first half of the 20th century. After 1999, the exhibition space was divided into six halls for permanent exhibition and a hall for temporary exhibitions. The first hall contains exhibits related to the main occupations practiced in the Orăştie area, agriculture and pastoralism. In the second room were exposed items on secondary occupations (hunting, gathering, fishing and beekeeping). The third room was for woodworking, the fourth related to the craft of pottery being exposed objects illustrating how to prepare the clay, pottery manufacture technology and finished products resulting from the processing. The fifth room was for home... textile industry and processing hides and skins, the area being renowned for doublets, coats and belts made here over the years and the last room presented costumes, both specific to Orăştie area and other ethnographic zones from Hunedoara county, namely Pădurenilor Land and Haţegului Land, objects linked to habits during the year and the life cycle and a beautiful collection of icons and one of crosses. Currently, due to insufficient storage space, part of the exhibition space has been transformed into temporary storage and four rooms in the main building and the glass room temporary exhibitions are held.
