This is a surprisingly good museum and a tower with a great view of the city. You really should do this if you are in Bratislava. We visited on our last morning in Bratislava but it deserves to be much higher up on the list of things to do. The museum is much bigger than it appears from the outside,... More

We loved the augmented reality at the Bratislava City at the Town Hall. It's quite a climb to the top of the tower - but the views are AMAZING - over the city, over the square and beyond. The wifi helps too - so you can video and tweet out :o)

I only spent one day in Bratislava, but I'm glad I spent the time on this museum. Although the staff don't speak much English, all of the signs and displays were well translated. Aside from the exhibits, which were fascinating, the building and architecture were great too. You can even climb up the bell tower and get a nice view... More

The one thing about a visit to the Bratislavia City Museum is that the most memorable part of this attraction is the building that the museum is housed in. Housed in the stunning Old Town Hall if you've any interest in visiting the museum tour in for a treat but I found the climb up to the tower super and... More

Saved this for a day we knew was going to be wet and it was pretty good. Housed in beautiful old buildings and showing life in Bratislava through the ages it took a good hour and a half for us to complete. Downside was the utterly miserable woman on the cash desk (we watched her serve another couple and she... More

We had only a bit more than an hour in this museum which was not near enough time for us. The first floor was a lot of religious relics which was only mildly interesting but the higher the floor the more interesting. There is a senior discount and on this weekday we had the place to ourselves. I enjoyed this... More

You wouldn't know that this place existed and the staff are a bit cold, but don't let this put you off it is WELL worth a visit. Full of fantastic stuff plus you can go to the top of the tower for great views of the city.

A very cheap way to spend a couple of hours/half a day even, and quite a surprise, given the range and 'depth' of displays and attractions. The museum is well organised, with lots of interpretation boards in very good English, with a linear historic timeline. So, you start with some religious iconography. move through the middle ages and the socio-economic-political... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here and felt it was worth the entrance fee (6 euros). All exhibits have perfect English descriptions and there is also optional audio guides which we didn't use (additional cost). Yes as some have mentioned on other reviews there is the usual museum paraphernalia, which is not to everyone's taste but there is a wide... More
