About thirty ethnographic nativity scene figurines of the Hyblaean Mountains in the classic style of Criscione as it is known in Europe. The nativity scene is reconstructed on a model depicting elements of the architectural and environmental heritage of Chiaramonte Gulfi.

The museum also hosts a collection of ceramics of Giacomo Alessi, artisan of Caltagirone.
