My most recent visit to the city was in early March when temperatures were an unseasonably cold -6C to -12C. Indoor attractions had therefore moved up my list of priorities! The natural history museum occupies the 2nd and 3rd floors (counted using the English convention)...More

Wasn't sure what to expect having visited some other Eastern European natural history museums but this was rather good and unexpected given the dour appearance outside. Plenty of information in English and an interesting section on Slovakian music and art.

A small but nicely formed museum, split over two floors. Interesting fossil exhibition and a couple of large models to view. Most signage in English except in the older minerals exhibit. Friendly staff who will point out especially interesting bits. 4 euros well spent!

I was really surprised in the quality of this museum. Yes it is small and clearly with limited means. The entire family enjoyed it very much, even the 1.5 years old had many wow to say about it.

A very nice museum to visit. It's small, only takes about 90 min to walk through but my boy loved the animals. For strollers there is a stair to get in and another one to get to the elevator. Also I did not find any...More

I visited the natural history exhibits and was very impressed. This is an old-fashioned museum that lets you see a lot of actual STUFF (including old specimen jars). The interpretation is concerned with information rather than preaching. The arrangement is mainly taxonomic (for instance a...More

The museum is quite small for its type, so if you're up for a quick 1h visit, this is the place to go, if natural history is your thing. English texts, nice exhibits, overall​ a good experience!
