in detail

There are also traditional stone-dressing tools as well as a large selection of tools used by carpenters and blacksmiths. Grain and liquid measures, as well as different types of weights and scales used in steelyards and by grocers, are also on display. The mezzanine floor exhibits domestic, and important, Gozitan crafts such as lace-making and weaving as well as minor ones such as book-binding.

The first floor, which used to be living quarters, hosts an exhibition of items relating to hobbies such as hunting as well as the modeling of miniature churches, replete with religious accessories.

On the same floor, there is also an interesting selection of traditional costumes, a collection of elaborately-worked clay statuettes, an ex-voto collection, and a number of furniture items typical of an urban house, even if in a rural environment. An entire room is devoted to the traditional fishing industry.
