The exhibition is devoted to the main works of Franconian painting and sculpture from the turn of the 12th century up to the Renaissance period, and in some cases to the Baroque period. The important art centres during this period of Bamberg, Nuremberg and Würzburg are represented on an equally high level.
The Franconian Gallery is closed from November until February.

The history of the Franconian Gallery
In 1983, the oldest of the branch museums of the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum was inaugurated in the majestic fortress of the Bishops of Bamberg in Kronach. In 2013/14, the museum underwent extensive renovations and the innovative lighting system now perfectly highlights the old masterpieces. Further major additions in 2020 helped expand the museum’s Lucas Cranach collection, thereby further enhancing the importance of this branch museum.
