Nice building which paints a view to the past

Come to admire the old architecture and get a feel for what life was like centuries back. This is an easy stop on your walk though the historic core.

First time trip to Bratislava and travelling solo, I knew very little about the city so decided to try the Museum of City History to educate myself! Very interesting exhibits, each in their own little room, full of stunning artwork and pieces from the city's history. All signs and details translated into perfect English. If you wish you can climb... More

Sweet little museum which is housed in an old historic building.Learn city's history from the exhibitions and then climb the stairs to admire the view from the top.

We had a great time stopping at every landing and seeing interesting displays at each. You can step outside at the top and admire the expansive views of the city.

This was a really interesting museum to visit for a ridiculously cheap price! It seems to go on and on and and one gets a really good idea of the history of the country. They managed to collect hundreds of items that are very well displayed so make sure you give yourself time to visit this museum.

We visited the museum to relieve ourselves of the hot sunshine, had a lovely time looking around the exhibits. One of the staff helped by informing us in sign language and mixed language what we were looking at. Very enjoyable.

The display and the lighting was not very impressive. Unless you are a museum buff it may not be worth your time.

There is a lot to see in here, including the evolution of the building itself as it was used for various purposes. There is a chapel, several beautifully decorated rooms and a variety of artefacts and exhibits about the history of the town. Well worth a visit.

Not as interesting as many historic town museums but still worth a visit because of its location (right in the middle of the main square), the very reasonable entry fee and the interesting building which includes a very steep tower with a stunning view over the old town.

This museum has a terrific collection of artifacts that cumulatively tell the story of Bratislava very nicely. There are several documents and decorative pieces that date back several centuries. Some of the doors to the upstairs rooms are quite fascinating. Look for the Rococo door that, until 1948, was part of the room that housed official documents. Take notice of... More
