It is housed in the former community office in the center of the village. Limenaria is a village in the south of Thasos, 40 km from the main town, Limenas.

The purpose of the museum is to preserve and promote the local tradition. It therefore displays household artifacts and clothing (embroidery, woven fabrics, traditional costumes, stoves, a loom and its accouterments, coffee-making equipment), tools of various trades (tailoring, barbering, woodcutting, bee-keeping, hunting, a shoemaker's and a cobble's bench, tools for collecting and transporting resin, a raki still, tools for collecting olives), and tools from the time when the local mines opened. The museum also displays Mr. Kyprianos Georgiadis' private collection of books and stationery.
