Ingelheim can look back on a changeful history. In a special way, this was shaped by a ruler: by Charlemagne.
"Karl also began to build two magnificent palaces: one was not far from Mainz near his estate Ingelheim, (...)", according to Einhard's biography of the Emperor. Visitors to the museum can learn more about the Ingelheim Imperial Palace and the archaeological excavations in the Palatinate. A reconstruction model gives a vivid impression of this once imposing Carolingian building. On display are objects from the field of building sculpture and revealing finds that have been brought to light by the excavators over the last hundred years.
In addition to the thematic focus on "Kaiserpfalz", the museum exhibition will display selected exhibits on local history from the Stone Age to the early Middle Ages. Objects from these epochs were from the Historical Association Ingelheim e. V. collected since the beginning of the 20th century and today belong to the inventory of the Ingelheimer Museum.
In all sections of the museum there are special children's texts on individual exhibits for the younger visitors.
