Located in a traditional Siwan house, the museum boasts traditional Siwan objects such as silver jewellery, music instruments, wedding costumes, baskets and ceramics. Inspired by a Canadian diplomat who feared that Siwan culture and its mud-brick houses would disappear someday; the small but interesting Siwa House Museum was built to preserve and display artifacts depicting the various aspects of the Siwan life.

The museum is situated in a house built in the traditional way where every room has a special function in the everyday life. The museum boasts musical instruments, wedding costumes, baskets and ceramics.
