As part of the restoration process of the city of Alsfeld, a regional museum centre was set up in the years 1975 – 1977 comprising the two patrician’s houses (Minnegerode and Neurath).  This includes the yards to the rear and a cottage. This was planned to adjoin the pedestrian precinct zone. The museum exhibits, previously housed in the Wedding House, are now displayed in the rebuilt and restored buildings under modern museum conditions. In addition, rooms were designed for presentations, lectures, concerts and exhibitions. The rear courtyards are used for musical events and festivities. The heritage of these historic buildings plays a vital role in today’s world and is held in trust for future generations.
