    We only saw the exterior, but it was impressive nevertheless - the large half-timbered building and the wide, cobbled courtyard.

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

    The main attraction in this centrally located museum is the "Vogelsaal" (Birds Room) which exhibits preserved tropical birds taken to Europe in the 18th or early 19th centuries.

    The brewery museum located in Bamberg´s St. Michaels abbey gives a comprehensive description of the history and art of beer making in general, and more specifically in Bamberg and surroundings. It is a rather small museum and I would allocate about 2 hours for the exposition, maybe in combination with visiting the abbey itself (abbey church is closed until at least 2021) and enjoying the spectacular views of the old town from there.

    The museum is located close to the Bamberg Cathedral and is home to the Treasury of the Cathedral.

    The collections are extensive and we especially admired the beautiful old textiles that still seem to be in a very good condition. Other objects of art include paintings, the holy cross of the cathedral, monstrans, and wood carvings.

    The Ludwig Collection was established by Irene and Peter Ludwig, who were also active in the chocolate business.

    The collection is of outstanding quality and consists of about 300 pieces of porcelain, including several items from Meissen, as well as faience.

    The building itself is very beautiful and there are some nice views of the River Regnitz from the museum.

    If you're into urban gardening, don't miss this museum. It even has a garden with liquorice, onions, cabbage etc.

    A beautiful house is intergrated into water landscape of the old town, where you can explore the history and culture of Bamberg. Interactive exhibition is attractive for familiy with kids to visit. I spent very nice time there.
