This museum is housed in a traditional house in Kato Drys that belongs to Gabriel and Eleni Papachristoforou. Several years after their departure, their heirs donated it to the Antiquities Department, which -in accordance with the terms of the donation -maintained it and converted it into a local museum.
The house is a typical specimen of local architecture from the 19th century. It is stone-made with five ground-floor rooms and an upper-level room, an indoor, enclosed yard with an oven, and a roofed passage with an arch that leads to the large gateway, which opens toward the road. Although simple, it was quite a luxuriant house for its time, belonging to a wealthy family that owned land and received a decent income through its crops.
When it was converted into a museum, the Antiquities Department made sure that the items and the configuration gave to the visitor an image of a traditional rural household.
