As a successful example of local museology, the Val di Sole Ethnographic Museum displays the traditional local tools and customs in different sections dedicated to agricultural, forestry and livestock-breeding activities, as well as to crafts and domestic country life. Ever growing thanks to citizens' private contributions, the museum in Malé recreates the key moments in the life of the small Rheto-Romanic population of Val di Sole. Opened in 1979 and later expanded in 1983, willed and established by the Val di Sole Studies Centre, the museum is hosted in the halls of some former Austrian barracks.
In this museum, the social customs of the 20th century, still currently retained in part, are successfully interpreted through the representation of the principal moments of a day in the life of these people. It showcases the tools and the methods used to ensure a living, especially through agriculture, milk and wood processing, as well as the crafts of the time, by accurately illustrating the original tools and the work shops of the time. There is also the stùa, which comes from Val di Rabbi and is the most important room in Val di Sole. Very accurate is also the reconstruction of the kitchen area. Special mention goes to the collection of memorabilia and original watercolours of abbey Giacomo Bresadola, the famous mushroom expert from Val di Sole as well as founder of modern mycology.
