I was quite taken with this small but well represented museum that pays respect to Jewish culture. The display as you enters provides a sobering description of how the Jews of Slovakia were systematically rounded up and all perished during the Holocaust. The museum on the upper floors showcases Jewish artifacts and is a wonderful educational display, especially for non-Jews.

Lots of Jewish history in this part of the world but this place doesn't display it well. Boring artefacts with little explanation in English and a weird section on Bulgarian Jews said a lot about the museum. I wouldn't bother going unless you really want to.

When I visited it wasn't clear to me how much admission was. The person in front of me paid just €2, when it was my turn I was told €7. I asked why the person in front could pay less and me more, the reply was "you come from a rich country so you pay more". I was speechless and... More

I confess, I am a history buff, and perhaps expect more in a museum that some. However, in all of my travels, this is positively the worst museum that I have ever visited, and for several reasons: 1. Overpriced: The average museum entrance fee in Bratislava is 2 Euros. This "museum" charges 7 Euros. When I asked at the front... More

Please check before you visit as they have a habit of closing for no apparent reason and it is rather difficult to locate in the first place.

Fascinating glimpse into the past, especially as Jewish family life always so traditional. Beautiful old house and synagogue and small garden.

We stayed in the hotel IBIS which is right around the corner. At first glance this museum may not look open- but push the door as it is! Wonderful people run the museum and with a mix of English and Slovak they will show you up stair and you can walk around 3 floors of museum. Perfect english guilds are... More

The museum was a nice find on a cold day in February as I was lost and cold. The museum is in a nice walk from the historic center in a wonderful old building. The exhibits and the staff are very welcoming. A visit on a spring day is planned in the not so distant future.
