The Ethnological Collections present the life of a farmer and citizen in Loško before industrialization. A festive costume from the second half of the 19th. century is presented. A black kitchen is set up for ambience, artificial lighting from the period before electrification are here also. The architecture is illustrated with models. On display there are tools and objects which were once used in agricultural, stockbreeding, food preparation and in traffic.
Of special interest is the collection of eight trades which were on Loško for those times very developed and important for the survival of Loka inhabitants. People were engaged with bobbin-work for lace, the sieve maker's trade (they were meshes woven from horsehair for sieves),  hat trade, linen trade, dyeing and printing linen, baking of honey pastries, called mali kruhek (little bread) and the making of artificial flowers. The  visitor can become familiar with their historical development, individual work stages – from raw materials to the final products, the retail and also the social status of members of particular trades.
