Most of the public areas of the museum are occupied by long term displays. One large area is bordered by alcoves, with each one holding objects consistent with a theme such as the room of an early residence or a particular occupation. In the centre are glass cases containing small objects. There is a large indoor area devoted to farm machinery, and another to horse-drawn and motorised transport. There is a recently completed display of textiles and vintage garments. Sometime in 2014 there will be a significant display of toys, partially interactive.
The gallery below contains images of some of the displays. They are links to larger images and detail. Some of the individual objects are also featured in the Collection area of the site.
