A small museum, set in a very old building, with a very beautiful architecture. Not many exhibits but there are a few quite interesting. You need max 40-50 minutes to visit it

If you want to view one of the best examples of Rococo style architecture in all of Europe then head in the direction of the magnificent Bratislava Castle were you will find Museum Of Clocks ( House Of The Good Shepherd ) .
This tall narrow building was built between 1760 and 1765 by master architecture Matej Hollaigl .
This is one of the few surviving original buildings to escape the demolition of the Jewish area in the 1960's to make way for the highway and stunning bridge.
The building is now a clock museum and was completely renovated in 1975 to give us a stunning looking piece of historically important architecture.
Easy to locate ,just past the magnificent St Martin's Cathedral, across the road and at the start of the ascent to Bratislava Castle, it's found on a street called Zidovska.
Well worth checking out.

Location: to the West of Old Town
Price: 2.5E or Free with Bratislava Card.

I wouldn't have paid for this museum. Its literally 3 floors of old clocks in a small/original building from the 1700s. Niche and quirky if you're into that kind of stuff.

The visit is on three stairs. Many clocks to see from the 17th tilleul 19th century. It is open from 11 AM till 6pm on sunday. The house is very old and narrow on the way to the castle. the entrance is 2,5 €. Quite Nice museum. The entrance is on the left side.

Interesting little museum. Spent 15 minutes looking at the clocks on the 3 floor museum. For only €2.50 per adult it's worth a look.

The museum is very small with several flights of steep stairs so not for the elderly or very young. Some fascinating clocks and the building itself is lovely and steeped in history.

The outside could do with painting, but if you like clockwork, don’t let this put you off. A lovely 3-storey building, converted into a tiny museum showing some properly, old and ornate historical clocks.

I particularly liked the musical clock paintings and the display of tiny portable sundials.

Nice, very nice.

a fun thing to do when coming out of the Castle and ultra cheap. Who knew I was so interested in clocks? Loved the history and tech involved in such ancient times.

Perhaps the best thing about this museum is that it is housed in a gorgeous, Baroque burgher's house from the 1760s. It is one of few surviving houses from the former Jewish quarter, which was bulldozed by the Communist regime.

The collection itself is dedicated to clocks, sundials and hourglasses from Bratislava's 18th and 19th century heyday as the centre of clockmaking in Slovakia. You will see a small collection of clocks, many of them looking very Baroque themselves. However, unless you have a particular interest, fifteen minutes will be enough for most visitors.

You can see it free with the Bratislava Card. Don't bother with paying a separate entrance fee.
