Museum of History

Historisches Museum Bamberg

Right next to the famous Bamberg Cathedral, the Historical Museum in the Old Court shows the precious collections of the world heritage city. A wide variety of art and historical testimonies from all eras are on display, from early history to the immediate present. But not only the exhibits tell timeless stories, but also the beautiful building of the Old Court whispers tales of kings, emperors and bishops who lived there

The museum boasts a large number of valuable exhibits. The extensive collections bear witness to the culture and history of this World Heritage City from pre-history right through to the 21st century.
Besides the art gallery, the museum also hosts an permanent exhibition called “In the Flow of History. The River Regnitz as Bamberg’s Lifeline”, which focuses on the history of the city and the surrounding region.
The latest addition to the permanent collections of the Museum of History is the exhibtion "Jewish Life in Bamberg" which explores the many traces of its Jewish inhabitants, their culture and life through the centuries.
