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

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.
