The visit to the museum, which is housed in some service rooms of the parish Church of San Martino, includes a visit to the chapel of the Confraternity of the blessed Name of Jesus.
Among the works on display are the famous 17th-century Ostension of the Shroud with the depictions of the Dukes Emanuele Filiberto and Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy, from the chapel of the Venera hamlet, and the wooden Crucifix by Stefano Maria Clemente, from the church of Col San Giovanni.
One room is devoted to ancient liturgical objects: vestments, reliquaries, altar cards, eighteenth-century missals, altar systems including the seventeenth-century chalice with the effigy of San Martino.

It is part of the Diffused Museum of the Viù Valley which consists of three sections housed in as many locations: the Environmental Heritage Section, in the hall of Alpine cults in the Tazzetti Museum in Usseglio; the Section devoted to History, housed in some rooms of the parish Church of San Martino; the Section of Art in the former chapel of the Confraternity of the blessed Name of Jesus, in Lemie.
