The permanent exhibition presents the historical evolution of appliances since beginning of the 20th century, through the main typologies grouped by functions: preserving, preparation and cooking of food, cleaning, air-conditioning, personal hygiene and plus entertaining and communication.

The chronological organisation of the objects mirrors the rapid technological evolution they underwent, as well as the importance design has gradually acquired with the passing of time until becoming, often over and above functionality itself, the top priority.

The continual acquisition of new pieces enables a constant updating of exhibits, as well as the organisation of temporary exhibitions, exclusively using the holdings in the collection.
