The museum originally belonged to the Fayad family. They used it as a silk factory from 1901 to 1954.

After briefly being occupied by the Syrian army in 1990, the building was handed back over to its original owners and restored into a silk museum to highlight the 1500-year old history of silk making in Lebanon.

A tour through the museum takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
