Peaked cap of the regional museum, after 1977

Alsfeld museums!The regional museum is opened

The city museum is run by the Alsfeld History and Museum Society (GMV). This association – founded in 1897 as the “Geschichts- und Alterthumsverein der Stadt Alsfeld” – already operated a museum in the wine house one year after its foundation. When these premises became too cramped, the town made the 1st and 2nd floors of the Hochzeitshaus and, from 1951, all four floors available. The museum was housed there from 1912 to 1975.

Since 1977 the city museum – at that time still under the name “Regional Museum” – is located in the two patrician houses Minnigerode- and Neurathhaus in the Rittergasse, which were structurally connected. Currently, the museum is undergoing an extensive phase of renovation, realignment and modernization. The Minnigerode House, the Neurath House and the adjacent barn will continue to form the core of the museum in the future. This is where the GMV’s new permanent exhibition on Alsfeld’s town history will be located.

The conception for this is currently in full swing. In addition, a central depot has been set up in the immediate vicinity as the new heart of the collection. This is where the GMV’s collection of more than 10,000 exhibits is housed. In the future, exciting special exhibitions on changing themes can also be mounted from there. So future visitors can expect a lot at the Stadtmuseum in Rittergasse. CCDG
