The KEM was founded in 1974. It is located in the central square of the Konavle village of Čilipi, in a building that used to be the village treasury. It was rebuilt and restacked after being burned down in 1991 (during the Homeland War).
Although the significant portion of its items was irreplaceably lost, the collection was renewed and now holds about 500 items, including male and female folk costumes, embroidery and other textile handcrafts, jewellery, arms, musical instruments and items used in the everyday life. The permanent display also includes a selection of the traditional needlework made by the Cavtat folklore society Jelka Miš.
