The museum is divided into two main sections.
The first section is a museum of Modern Greek art, which presents important works of art and sculpture created by Greek artists of the second half of the 20th century. A general survey of the works clearly shows the significant influence of classical, Byzantine and folk tradition.
The second section is called the "Pyrghi" (or tower) and is composed of a complex of two traditional rural houses, the remains of a stable and an old wine-press dating from the end of the period of Ottoman rule, in the early 19th century. The exhibits which are displayed in the "Pyrghi" are mainly Greek folk objects of every day use, rare pieces of furniture, hand-made rugs of various types, troughs, large jars, millstones, stone well rims, a large pottery collection, interesting oil paintings and engravings which depict historic events of modern Greece, as well as various important ancient finds.
