Very friendly and helpful custodians guided us around - four children aged 3-14 and their mum. The exhibit was perhaps not the most interactive, but there were many interesting items and a really nice view from tower!!

I would imagine an important museum like that in old town Bratislava would be more impressive. Dull exhibits and there was no wonder - when we were there we were the only visitors while the city was full of tourists.

Interesting for an afternoon, buy a combined ticket for the wine gallery and period rooms next door and save a few euros

The museum was a lot more extensive and quite well done. Good value. The best part for me was the tower. It is worth the hike up. Great views.

I was told by the tourist info this museum had history. When I tried asking at the tourist bureau where to go for history of Slovakia she pointed to this museum. The museum had limited english and was of limited interest. Then she pointed me to the arms museum which I thought was included on the ticket - which turned... More

I liked their war history as well as the information on their unique linkage to the Austrians as well as Hungary. Also the Communist era when there was a Iron curtain and although Vienna is just one hour away now, was so far away then

The Museum host some exhibitions displaying various artefact from the town's history, some pictures, costumes, but also vintage industrial and food brands produce. Take... More

The City Museum is located in the main square and passing through the courtyard, you come to museum in the old Town Hall.

You can follow the fortunes of the city through various invaders and emperors. Not... More

Located in the main square, the City Museum is one of the most impressive buildings in the centre of Bratislava. It is church like with its tower and civic offices. Inside through a narrow opening the courtyard opens out into a modern plate glass entrance, pay desk, and non-functioning computerised barriers. There is also a lift, toilets and a bag... More
