Originally it was a square two-storey building with one living space on the ground floor and one on the first floor, i.e. more like a residential tower, which originated in the Middle Ages, probably fortified with a fortified wall. Its Renaissance character is evidenced by the windows with tracery and moulded cornices above the windows, the cross vault with a cresting in the middle, the mounded vault with lunettes and the original corner painted quoins. Renaissance plaster was discovered, and the mansion also had a sundial.

The manor house was built by the Suňog family, the owners of the Budatín manor, to which Radoľa and part of Kysuce belonged. In 1658, a large manor was mentioned here, where 50 cows, 25 chickens, 10 turkeys, 15 geese, 5 peacocks, 30 pigs and around 800 Welsh cattle were kept. The manor included barns, a fruit garden, a cabbage garden, a brewery, two hop farms, a mill, a sawmill and also two ponds with carp, pike and charr. At the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century, the manor house was evidently occupied by Gaspar III. Suňog, who had the manor rebuilt. At that time, stables and a storage room for carriages and wagons are mentioned next to the manor house. At the end of the 18th century, the Čáki family became the new owners of the manor and the whole estate.

In the later period the manor house served for residential purposes, in the 1970s it was reconstructed and since 1983 the Kysuce Museum has had its expositions and exhibition halls here. In the underground there is an exposition The World of Ancient Ancestors, presenting the most important archaeological sites in Kysuce, including a replica of a small mammoth and an original mammoth tooth on display. One part of the exposition is dedicated to the Lusatian culture from the Bronze Age, another part represents the Iron Age in Kysuce - the period of the Púchov culture. The third part is devoted to the medieval period and research on the church and cemetery in Radoľa - Koscelisko

On the first floor there is an exposition of bourgeois housing in Kysuce, where visitors will see furniture and home accessories from the second half of the 19th to the first half of the 20th century, including Art Nouveau and "art deco" - for example, a living room bedroom from Kysucké Nové Mesto in historicist style from the last third of the 19th century, and a living room from Kysucké Nové Mesto from the last third of the 19th century. In the last half of the 19th century, a Biedermeier-style sofa set, an Art Nouveau bedroom, a dining room, paintings, as well as a 19th-century upright piano, "Rosenthal" porcelain, a coffee machine from the 1920s, and old toys, etc.

In addition, various exhibitions are held in the manor house, lectures and presentations are organised for schools, and creative workshops are held. Among the most famous events is the Radoľa Fair, which the museum organises in cooperation with the municipality of Radoľa.
