It acquires, professionally processes and preserves various historical, archaeological and ethnographic collections in the framework of its specialisation, displays these in exhibitions and also organises various cultural activities which enjoy great popularity among its visitors, in particular children.

Research undertaken by the museum is focused on puppet cultures, personalities of the puppet theatre, development of the Slovak toy, and the ethnography and archaeology of the region.

The museum provides its own exhibition premises for short-term exhibitions.
