As it was raining in Old Town, we went into this place to get some respite. We learn from the exhibition rooms of the history of Bratislava., torture devices, antique weapons and armour, paintings , old town dungeons. Indeed an eye opener.

We were there half an hour before closing. They couldn't be bothered to sell us a ticket because we might keep them from getting home. It not a huge place, we were sorry to have missed it. They don't quite understand tourism yet.

Large, interesting museum. €5 entry very reasonable. Easy to while away a couple of hours here. Great views from the Tower. Staff particularly gruff. No smiles at all, grumbles when we asked for the audio headsets. Follow you around very closely not speaking or engaging in any way.

This museum is such a great introduction for you to learn about Bratislava. It's located centrally. I learned a lot about the history of Czech and Slovakia from the artifacts displayed in the museum.The collection is great, but I found the layout was not very chronological, so I only give 4 dots instead of 5. My favourite is the view... More

The City Museum was situated in the Old Town Square. Entrance fee was required and there were lots to see inside. Furthermore you could climb to the top to have panoramic views over the whole town. Worth to visit if you have time.

Great museum and worth a look however, this will take a few hours out of the day due to its size. Beautiful building.

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

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.
