The collection of objects gathered in the museum was first established in 1975 by the Associazione Turistica Pro Loco di Palazzuolo. In 1982, the town administration offered some rooms in the Palazzo dei Capitani in order to house the museum, and today the exhibit area extends over two floors and is comprised of 10 rooms and 800 objects on display. The smallest and perhaps the most unique item of the collection is a set of aluminum dentures made in the 1930s by an artisan (who made the dentures for himself), meanwhile the largest display piece is a water-run wheat mill that is so large it takes up an entire room.
