The building called Kraatarintupa, from the 1820s, stands on its original location. There are also hundreds of objects and tools representing old peasant culture. Many of the buildings and objects have been donated by local people. The museum area is open to the public regularly in the summer and at other times as agreed, and events and occasions are organised as well. The area also features a granary displaying objects used in tar manufacturing.
