This museum was a revelation. It is stuffed full of treasures including copes and clothing dating back to the eleventh century. It is a shame that they offer no guidebook (even in German) and allow no photography.

The pieces displayed at this museum (specially the textiles) are really worth seeing. However, do not expect any information in English or any other language but German. For a museum that is charging visitors, I think this is not fair or nice.

While there is a fee for the museum while the church is free it is included in the Bamberg Card. The museum has wonderful holy outfits and artifacts from through the ages. Enjoy!

Enjoyed our visit, as the inside is interesting as well as the exhibits. Again, it is included in the Bamberg Card, so we got it for free! Like all museums, you have to put your day pack, purse, etc in a locker, but remember, you...More
