The museum opened in 1985 and represents a full-fledged peasant farmstead with all the elements of subsistence farming typical of the end of 19th and first half of the 20th century. In the house and the outbuildings, farming tools of the 18th-20th centuries are exhibited, as well as household items of the up-river Chuvash peasants.
The museum includes a vegetable garden of one hectare, where all fieldwork is done using ancient methods: sowing rye and flax; cultivating crops. Ancient methods are used in the museum to bake bread, brew beer, and weave linen cloth. All through the year, in accordance with the folk Chuvash calendar, the Museum of Subsistence Farming of 19th Century Chuvash Peasants holds celebrations of ritual holidays.
