The House of Karamanly, or al-Qaramanli House, was built in the second half of the 18th century, during the reign of Ali Pasha Al-Qaramanli, and was used by Yousuf Pasha until his death.

The house was restored during the early 1990s and became known as Tripoli Historical Exhibition. The house is located in Tripoli's Old City.

It houses a good selection of the objects normally found in a Libyan house from that period, including furniture, kitchen gear, copper and brass ornaments, clothes, jewellery, and vintage gadgets such as a gramophone, telephone and a radio.
