The house where the museum is now located, was donated from Mr & Mrs. Hadjiliasi and the Municipality renovated it under the supervision of the Town Planning and Housing Department. The exhibition was arranged in collaboration with the Cyprus Handicraft Service and is divided in indoor and outdoor.
