The museum building is made of four bodies, it was built in different periods. The frontal body is the oldest one, it dates since the end of XIX century and it served as headquarters, later one it became the casino of Artisan Associations from Zalău. In 1920's here functioned the first Romanian gymnasium. After nationalization it was a library. In interwar period it was enlarged with a Festival Hall, which after 1970 it was divided in two levels, and another two bodies were added to the building. In 1990's, by building another body it ended up at the present appearance.

Since1951 the space is occupied by the County museum of history. The three bodies host many collections and over 90000 exhibits: coins, Roman-Dacian statues, and documents since middle ages, modern and contemporary age, pieces of folk art, sculptures and paintings.
