The museum was inaugurated on September 10, 2000 by the President of the Hellenic Republic, Constantine Stephanopoulos.

Nymfaio is a traditional Macedonian village and very popular tourist resort. It is inhabited by Vlachs and is located 14 km from Amyndaio and 53 km from Florina.

It is housed in a three-storey town house in the centre of the village in the traditional style—the ‘Neveska House of Goldsmiths’ (Neveska being the old name of Nymfaio). The new building is decorated with old mural paintings and furnished with authentic furniture and the domestic amenities of a nineteenth-century house.

The museum has showcases displaying two sets of rare goldsmith’s tools and a collection of goldsmith’s work (including men’s and women’s jewellery, ecclesiastical objects, buckles, belts, snuff-boxes, and household utensils).

There are also showcases displaying authentic women’s costumes as well as photographs and other memorabilia of the Macedonian Struggle including original letters written by such leaders of the Macedonian Struggle as Pavlos Melas, Kaoudis, Germanos Karavaggelis, Georgios Katechakis, general Papoulas, and documents from the Archive of Euthimios Kaoudis and Nikos Mertzos.
