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

Diocesian Museum interesting for artifacts well presented and its information on Clement II. Probably not for the casual visitor. It is a typically quiet and serene venue. Good for a break on a snotty winter's day.

A great museum to visit with several rooms and exhibits was very informative although an audio guide would have been best as my German is not so good. Highly recommended as it is adjacent and left of the main entrance to the cathedral.

Don't be put off by the fact that this is a museum of solely ecclesiastical exhibits. The quality of the early vestments and needlework is probably worth the entrance charge alone. Unfortunately however there is little documentation for the visitor in any language other than...More
