The structure of the heritage house is a remnant of the maintenance base of the British Air Force from the Mandate period (1940-1948). With the establishment of the state, the abandoned British camp became a transit camp for Yemeni immigrants (1949-1950), and this building served as a baby house for the children of Yemeni immigrants.
The building has been approved for preservation by the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel. Since 2017, the building has undergone an accelerated process of restoration, renovation and adaptation, and today it serves as a permanent residence for the "Museum of Yemenite Jewish Heritage and City Heritage". Also in the building are the historical archive of Yemenite Jewry and the city of Rosh HaAyin, and the Yad Labanim house in Rosh HaAyin.
In the heritage house and museum, collections related to the history of Yemenite and Rosh HaAyin Jewry are displayed and preserved, including: ancient manuscripts and Torah scrolls, jewelry, photographs, textiles, objects - household and work tools, books, documents from the beginning of the settlement, films and more. There are also rotating exhibitions on display.
