Linos Museum is situated in the village of Kakopetria in the Nicosia district and more specifically is it situated in the Old Kakopetria part of the village.

In addition, the museum is made up of three thematic areas, or units. The first thematic area is dedicated to wine, the second is dedicated to bread and the last one is dedicated to oil.

The building which houses Lino, was rented by Mr. Stelio Alkiviade in 2000 who also began the partial renovation of the building. Later on the Pancyprian Organization for Architectural Heritage along with the Department Of Urban Planning proceeded to the gentrification of the area with European funds.

The museum has two rooms on the ground level and another two on the upper floor. The first room which is also the entrance is where the visitor can see where the donkeys ate. The food was placed in a particular position so that the donkeys ate after they would unload the baskets with the grapes, which is also where the wine was produced.
