Until 1990, the Emin Gjiku Complex served as a nature museum, but after the completion of internationally funded conservation works in 2003, it was turned into an ethnological museum housing a vast collection of traditional costumes as well as utensils, handcraft elements, and other tools used in everyday life. The above-mentioned collection is sheltered in the two central buildings of the complex (the house and the guest house) situated at the inner court, while at the entrance court, the relocated building is rented under a special contract by the museum to the Contemporary Art Centre 'Stacion' in Prishtina and the stable, the object of the study, is left unused to date, despite the constant promises by the director of the museum to turn it into a traditional food restaurant.
