Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stunning historic building with artifacts dating back to the 3rd century. Really gives you an appreciation for the deep history of Bratislava. It also has a beautiful lookout over the old town. I’m honestly shocked that this isn’t on top of everyone’s list coming here.

I LOVED this museum! The collection is impressive - I saw artifacts dating from BC through the 20th century. There were items that are hundreds of years old in the same room with interactive touch screen displays. I enjoyed the incorporation of older pieces of Bratislava’s history with modern technology. There is a creative variety of interactive displays as well.

Items are well-marked and well-described. The topics of various rooms/areas are clearly displayed. I appreciated that there were staff members posted at various points to direct me where to go next. It also feels low-key because I did not see prominent signs around the vicinity to advertise it. I would not have known it was there but for a self-guided walking tour I downloaded of the old town area. That was a plus for me because I had many spots to myself and could quietly read/explore. But I thought this was such a cool & well done museum that it definitely deserves more attention.

Factor in at least a couple of hours. I could have spent longer than that but didn’t have the time. I did not know much about Bratislava’s history walking in, and I really enjoyed myself and learned a lot. This was one of my favorite museums I have visited.

Good sized museum with lots to look at but not really the most exciting. Everything has an English translation and with reading it all our visit took us three hours. Admission was €4 for students and there's free luggage lockers which were handy. Most of the staff were a bit unfriendly except for one man who was great, helping point us through the building and make suggestions.

The museum begins with an exhibition of religious artefacts followed by a trip up the tower, which explains the history of the building along the way. The tower gives great views of Bratislava and is probably the highlight of the place.

The next large section covers the history of the city in great detail, sometimes a bit too much. There's lots to read, artefacts to look at and some good interactive displays and models. In the basement there's an extensive wine cellar which is good for a quick look around but is mainly there to sell you wine.

Students only costed €4 (adults €8). The exhibition was well organized to tell the story of Bratislava history part by part. The staff were amazingly helpful as they keep making sure we are on the right path (the museum layout could be confusing at times but there were no problems at all with these helpful staff) The tower is not very friendly for people with mobility problems, but I guess they could do nothing about it because of the way the towers were built many years ago. The view from the higher levels of the tower was phenomenal, I took many pictures. Some exhibitions were quite interactive. My favourite exhibition is a room where it tells the story of several Bratislava residents in different time, telling the history of Bratislava from a citizen’s perspective, and in different stages of its history. There are so much to see there and I think the admission ticket was a huge bargain, whether you are a student or not.

I really enjoyed this museum, especially the exhibits at the beginning of the tour. During your visit you are able to climb up the tower to a great lookout of the city. Towards the end the exhibits seemed less interesting and repetitive, but if they are not of interest to you, you are always free to walk past them. Appreciated that they had lockers so I could take a break from carrying my bag.

Viewpoint access was free but museum was not. Museum has a number of different buildings and exhibits, we only did the rooftop viewpoint.

Set on its square, surrounded by all that it is, the museum occupies a lovely building that is really nice to observe and explore... Well worth a look...

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.
