Villa Bartolomei is a two-storey building with a preserved Late Baroque exterior, which is especially obvious from the northern façade: the central axis is accentuated by a massive stone portal on the ground floor and a balcony on the first floor. In 1980 the building, damaged by the 1976 earthquake, was allocated to the Goriška Museum to arrange a collection of recent history there. One year later the interior was renovated according to plans by architect Bogdan Mikuž and converted into museum exhibition rooms.

Villa Bartolomei features the permanent historic exhibition Goriška between 1918 and 1947, which comprises a multitude of documents, artefacts and photographs illustrating the period when the region belonged to Italy (1918–1943), the Second World War and the liberation struggle in Goriška (1941–1945), and the conditions under the allied military administration and the Yugoslav Army (1945–1947).

The museum exhibition is enhanced by a documentary film entitled Usode črnega neba (Destinies of the Dark Sky) and an art exhibition which illustrates the cultural history of the period.
