The madrasa building was built by the name of Vacidiye Medresesi in 1314 by one of the Germiyan Bey, Umur Bin Savcı. The portal of the building, built of cut stone, shows the characteristics of Seljuk art.

It has nine small rooms with doors opening to the domed central space. In the showcases in the museum, artifacts belonging to the Paleolithic, Chalcolithic, Old Bronze, Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman periods are exhibited since the late Miocene period.
