The building land was donated by a private collector named Mutahhar Başoğlu in 1976, and the museum was opened in 1983. The items displayed in the museum were previously archived at the Tire and İzmir Archaeology Museums. In addition, Başoğlu donated archaeological and ethnographic material from his personal collection.
