The palace was built during the 18th century by a noble, Mohamed El Bradaï El Ksontini who later sold it to Slimane Kahia, a general in the Tunisian
army. But it got its current name from its last owner, the rich silk trader Mohamed Tahar Ben Abdallah. In 1964, the office of Tunisian arts bought the house and made it the popular arts and traditions museum of Tunis
In 1978, the palace got transformed into a museum exposing the daily life of tunisian nobles of the Medina of Tunis
in the 19th and the 20th century.
It is divided into 2 sections: one for the family life and the traditions while the other is for the public life of the city and its institutions (souks
, mosques, coffee shops
