Some nice exhibits with a good view from the tower
Sep 2021
The museum was much longer than I expected. It has about 5 sections, one about historical outfits, one about the history of Bratislava, one about arts and crafts, and one about the tower construction.
The tower is not made for people with disabilities, it has narrow stairs. The view is great, it offers a great view of the square as well as a lot of other buildings. You get to walk around the whole thing.
There are free storage lockers in the entrance. Nice and helpful staff.

City Museum

Nice museum to see and read about the city's history and view artifacts. Interesting exhibits. Climbing to the top of the tower is worth it, although be mindful of the twisting stone and wooden staircase, not for small kids or those with knee problems. Views are nice from the tower, and wasn't crowded at all.

Not enough time!

As the Castle was closed I went to the City Museum which is housed in the old town hall. It has a great tower to climb up and see across the rooftops. But it turned out the Museum was much more extensive than I had realised. So an hour did not do it justice. Great value at €5.

Beautiful structure

Unfortunately, I didn't go inside. But next time I will. The structure is beautiful and there's a fantastic courtyard.

They gave me the right umbrella
Jan 2020
I was a little reluctant to visit following the previous review about the wrong umbrella but I’m happy to confirm that the cloakroom did in fact give the me RIGHT umbrella. Thank you!

They gave my umbrella to the wrong person-left without an umbrella on an extremely wet day
Dec 2019 • Friends
The museum was OK, however the experience was totally ruined in the end. The lady in the cloakroom managed to give my umbrella to the wrong person and I was left without an umbrella on a crazy wet day. What's more, she was giving out to me in Slovakian, explaining how she does not know what happened.
The other lady who works at the reception desk was nice but I was just shocked by the cloakroom assistant's attitude. Maybe you should allow people to use the lockers to avoid incident like this (she was adamant about me not using the locker in the first place). As said, ruined it all,dreadful attitude.

City museum of Bratislava
Dec 2019 • Solo
Though outside is seems like a small building, the inside is quite wide-opening. I would definetly recommend this to someone who wants to understand the history of Bratislava (its only 5 euros for an adult).The tower on the top has a nice view (careful step on the narrow stairs though).

City Museum : If you only do one museum, do this one.
Nov 2019
Museum in the Old Town Hall. entrance 5 euros for an adult. Free lockers and cloakroom at entrance. Excellent museum covering Slovak and Bratislavan history and architecture from BC to 1989, coronations and culture from trade and shops to food and singing associations. Great views of the town from the tower (note : steep climb up spiral staircase). Very well laid out with English descriptions of items on display. The building architecture itself is stunning and all the original interiors are as worth seeing as the items on display.

Fascinating overview of just about every aspect of a city you could think of : something for every interest. There is even a basement of Middle Ages torture equipment, though it's easy to bypass this if it's not your thing.

Exhibits: medieval to the 20th century, a high tower with great view and a torture dungeon! Perfect!
