The exposition is located in the former palace of the wealthy Greek merchant Konstiantyn Korniakt. An enterprising Greek moved to Lviv from the Crete Island in the late XVI century and even served as chief customs officer of the Ruthenian lands in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth for several years.

There is reason to believe that it was he who actively familiarized the wealthy citizens with the best samples of Mediterranean wine. Expensive drinks were kept in the cellars of the palace. After the death of K. Korniakt, King Jan III Sobieski became the next owner of the building. He loved staying here with his wife Marysenka.

Furniture, paintings, sculptures, clocks, musical instruments, porcelain give a sense of the glory of that era and show the atmosphere of the old city.
