The Rural Life Collection conserves objects from the first half of the 20th century. The value of this collection is that it contains objects that testify about all the segments of rural life in Istria.

In addition to women’s and men’s traditional garments, the collection also conserves household items that were used in everyday life by the Istrian rural population, both at their homes and in the fields.
