This house is considered to be the school of the Holy Quran for the children of the Sphinh region for four generations until the last forty years. This is why it is loved by all the people of the region and reminds them of their childhood
The original owner of the house was the late Haj Abdollah-ban- Shahin, a well known and popular person in Kish during the past 80 years. He was a pearl merchant and owner of one of the largest sailing Lenjes of his time, and was also skilled in woodworking (called “gallafi” in the native language) and building Lenjes. He inherited the house from his great grandfather.

In order to introduce the unique history, culture, traditions, livelihood, and handicraft of the native Kish residents, to create jobs for native inhabitants and promote greater participation on their behalf in tourism-related activities, and to realize sustainable tourism goals in Kish Island, the house was upon the present owner’s consent and obtaining the required permits from the Kish Free Trade Zone Organization, turned into a museum in April 2014 and called The Anthropological House of the Native Residents of Kish Island. Without changing their traditional architecture, all the rooms in the house were renovated using indigenous materials and thus, the life style of Kish’s native inhabitants in the past 80 years was revived.
The idea of turning the house into a museum of anthropology as the first phase of the eco-museum in Seffin was proposed by Mohammed Jassim Pour, the great-grandson of the house owner, on the basis of his thesis entitled "eco-museum and its role in the development of Kish Island sustainable tourism" and was implemented in collaboration with a number of survivors and the Island indigenous youth.
The live demonstration of livelihoods, livelihoods and indigenous people of Kish in 80 years ago in a truly original and completely traditional environment for tourists and tourists.
In this historic home, you can see the livelihoods and tools used by the natives of the island over the past 80 years. The layout of the house, part of which belongs to Hajj Ibrahim Salem Husseini, the bridegroom of Hajj Abdullah bin Shaheen, expresses the long-standing origins and traditions of Kishondan.
We would like to extend our special gratitude to Haj Ebrahim Salem Hoseini who for years took excellent care of this house and through its timely repair and maintenance, played the greatest role in protecting this house as a part of Kish’s cultural inheritance. He offered his sincere cooperation in founding the museum as well by donating his precious house and its furniture so as to keep alive the history and culture of Kish Island. We hail this great patriot for all his valuable deeds in this regard.
