The museum first opened in 1972 and boasts a valuable collection of traditional Palestinian costumes, household and agricultural items and traditional furniture; in addition a large collection of old photographs and pictures depicting Bethlehem and its inhabitants in the 19th and early part of the 20th centuries.
