The museum traces the history, art and traditions of the Gruyère region.
Its permanent exhibition presents an important collection of Folk Art from the area (poyas, bells, cream spoons...).
Reconstructions of interiors and themed areas tell of the economic, religious and social history of the inhabitants of the region between the 16th and 20th centuries. There are farmers' rooms, mountain cheese dairies, objects bearing witness to popular piety, everyday life and the pastoral cycle.
Objects, costumes and documents reveal the richness of a traditional culture based on the farming of mountain pastures and trading of the famous Gruyère AOC cheese.
