1.  Annafest is something that your wife and kids would probably also enjoy.  Live music, lots of rides, etc.  I wouldn't want to be carrying an infant or chasing a toddler around Annafest but teenagers I'd bring.  I'll be at Annafest this year on the 1st Saturday (a crowded day but we'll go early).

2.  Very tough to answer.  There are several places and not all near each other.  We all have our personal favorites.  For me there are many but sicne you mentioned Pottentstein that is one of the many places I really love.  Spielbach (probably too far away for you to make happen but I'd hate not to mention it).  Roppelts Keller and Lieberth keller up on the Kreuzberg.  Merkendorf.  Dorfleins, Schroll in Reckendorf, Moenchsambach ... and I could keep going on and on.  I think your just going to have to do your research and make a tough decision.  No way around it.  For a beautiful setting and a beer I really love for me it's hard to beat Roppelts Keller.  I could spend all day there.  Others disagree with me on that.

3.  Can't help you there.

4.  Admittedly I'm not sure what a museum is.  I may have passed one or two on the way to a brewery.  There is the brewing museum in Bamberg of course.  However, I think it's worth going up to the Altenburg castle in Bamberg for starters.  Have lunch or dinner up there with the family perhaps.  Nuremburg is probably a good place for that sort of thing as well.  

I'll be based in Bamberg from the 19th to the 29th with a homebrewing friend from upstate NY and my daughter and her friend will be coming into Bamberg from  Berlin also for the first Annafest weekend.  I think Canalissimo in Bamberg is the weekend of the 19th but I haven't seen an official announcement.  That's my hope because that is a good time and you and the fmaily would probably enjoy it.  So if you're there during some of those same days I hope to meet you for a beer.
