  • It has a very eclectic collection of local history and art displayed in an historic building. It is worth an hour or so.

  • If you're an international tourist, it's not a good idea to visit this museum. Unfortunately just a handful of texts have been translated to English, everything else is in German, which is such a pity considering how large their collections are. Come only if you have seen the nice outdoor places Bamberg has to offer, or if it's a really rainy day. No credit card accepted at the ticket shop. But staff was friendly.
  • A good museum about a place where not a lot has happened. Could be greatly improved by more English explanations and long form narratives. Also more interactivity. Themed more around regional activities than a historical narrative, this nevertheless is a worthy place to gen up on all things Bamburg.
