The Matback croft provides an example of a 19th century house. The interiors are authentic, from the family Bible to the pot resting on the stove. The cabin is a twin cabin typical of the era. Pictures relating the history of Sipoo are displayed near the entrance.

The Fram-Martis croft presents a newer interior from the early 20th century. Handicrafts created during many a long evening are displayed on the porch. On summer Sundays, there are weavers and spinners at work, and coffee is served.

There is also a laundry exhibition with Sipoo’s first washing machine. Summer exhibitions on various Sipoo-related themes are often organised in the drying barn, Donabackan. The cosy yard is decorated by a carefully tended garden and a large rock called “Nils-fafas lyfton”.
