Interiors of the building distinguish themselves with ornate wooden decorations, stuccoworks, imposing fragments of frescos. One part of the exposition “A Provincial Manor and a Town” creates the stylized environment of estate. There are 4 galleries (Eastern Art Gallery, the Kings Gallery, the Landowners' Gallery and The Gallery) and 4 halls, devoted to interiors (The Library, The Yellow and The Green Salons, and The Dining Room). The other part – “The Provincial Town” – introduces retro cinema hall “Kapitol”, reconstructed fragment of the street and a shop from the 3-4 decades of the 19th c.
