Today's museum of Alzey was built in the 16th century as a hospital building. The stair tower in  the front and the windows are recognisable from this time of building. After the destruction in 1689 as a consequence of the war of palatinate succession the hospital was rebuilt in 1747/48 in a baroque style with a spacious mansard roof.

The museum mis located on three floors in the old city hospital. On second floor you can find the exhibition 'geology and palaeontology'. This is dedicated to the 'basin of Mainz' whose development can be followed over millions of years simply by usingt fossils.

On the first floor you can find the exhibiton pre and early history'. It shows the demolition of the cultural and historical development of inner Rhinehesse from the neolithic period over the bronze, iron and romanian period to the merovingian times.

The exhibition on the ground floor is about the city and regional history. Besides the representation of the historic development of the city from the medieval to the 20th century, special pieces of the exhibition are dedicated to the symbol figure of Volker from Alzey, the playman from the nibelungen song, the pioneer of the vine cultivation Georg Scheu or to the history of the medical care. A special main focus forms the history of the jews in Alzey and their culture.
