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.

    Nice activity to visit when staying in Bratislava - just a 20 minute bus ride away from Most SNP bus stop (stop g from memory, under the bridge). We spent a good few hours there wandering around the castle and it’s grounds. There are a few exhibition rooms which provide a good amount of the history and explain the recent excavation activities that have been done. Some stunning views of you get good weather.

    I got a taxi there and a bus back, visiting this gallery that's next to Hungary and the bus ride skirts the Austrian border. The gallery itself is fascinating, as it's the park, and I loved stopping, sitting and watching the Danube. There's a cafe where you're completely ignored until you have a hissy fit but the coffee was nice (didn't try the cakes which looked superb).

    Lots of floors of beautiful and fascinating art covering a wide range of eras, very calm and uplifting atmosphere, great coffee shop with books to read. Chill. Loved it.

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

    Very small, but entertaining place! It was on the way to castle, took us about 30-45min. Fine relaxation, got also some water and nice service. Well spent 5eur per person.

    The Transport Museum is only a 15-20min walk from the old town and very easy to find.

    It only cost 7€ per adult and an extra €1 for the privilege of taking photos.

    There's some very interesting vehicles and memorabilia on display both inside and outside.

    The only thing that was missing was any type of steam train, there was just a couple of electric and diesel locomotives outside and a large area fences off, this was a shame as these old communist style steam engines are amazing!

    If you like your transport and motor vehicle history then it's well worth a visit but will only take up a couple of hours of your day.

    Entry for an adult was 6 Euro. On the ground floor it had an exhibition focusing on china and the Habsburgs. At the first floor rocks and fossils, and on the other floors stuffed animals, birds and so on. A lot to take in.

    The exhibitions are e quite small, featuring various Slovak artists, but it gives you a good flavour of Slovak art movements and the write up and presentation is great. There's a really nice library as well and professor hamster is brilliant - originally designed as a tool to help teach kids about art history and get them engaging, it's also terribly entertaining for adults as well.

    The location is not the easiest to find and you’ll have to walk some time in the middle of the “woods” 😂 but once you’re there is all worth it. It’s a shame that everything is written is Slovakian but you have pictures as well. The guy there is very friendly and even though he doesn’t speak English he tries his best with a mix of different languages and gestures so at the end you do understand all the history.

    Palffy Palace together with Mirbach Palace forms the Bratislava City Gallery and I recommend you buy a 6 euro ticket with which you can visit both. The building is beautiful on the outside, but the interior is fabulous. Mostly I liked the "passage" which represents some kind of a symbolic "short cut across the world" in which we exist. It consists of nearly 15,000 books which together with mirrors create an illusion of endless space and infinity of human knowledge.

    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.

    It is not that hard. Catch a tram #3, 5, or 7 with destination Raca. You can buy a ticket on the tram from a machine. Use English flag button to get translation. You will need a zone 100/101 ticket. Alight at Detvianska, walk to right 100m to bus stop for buses#52, 56. There are about 4 per hour. It is then about 5 stops. The tram ride was about 25 minutes and another 7 minutes on the bus. The Locomotiva 1 stop is past where you want to go, but if you go a little further you see the old steam loco with the map. Then go back about 400m along the lane, do a U - turn and there you are. I came on a Wednesday in mid September at 10.00 hrs. The gate was open, but no one was around. I could see all the external exhibits and they were very impressive. I took so many photos as I walked all over.

    A very nice, small exposition of old mercantile items and advertisements. We particularly enjoyed the room that contains a recreation of an old convenience store. The personnel of the museum was very nice to us. This museum is on the outskirts of Bratislava, but definitely worth a visit if you are nearby!

    There is some confusion amongst the reviews here. There are 2 separate Jewish museums. This Jewish museum is on the West of the old city and is open all year round. It has a number of Jewish religious items on the first floor (not particularly specific to Bratislava), and on the second floor details the history of the Slovakian Jews, the Holocaust and the post-Holocaust period. The narrative is lacking depth, and a number of key facts are missing such as why most surviving Jews left Slovakia post-WW2 (there were pogroms against the survivors by Slovakians who had effectively stolen the houses of the Jews that were sent to the concentration camps and were reluctant to return the houses to their rightful owners!). The secretary mentioned that they are looking to expand the exhibition, funding permitted.

    There is a separate museum called the Jewish community museum, on the site of the old synagogue. It is closed in the winter, but if you email they can open up for a fee on request.

    If you are interested in military history I can thoroughly recommend a What-Bratislava tour.

    Robert, our guide, picked us up as pre-arranged under the UFO tower close to the observation deck entrance in the veteran vehicle UAZ-452.

    We were then driven to the area of the old iron curtain border to drive on the roads which previously would have been patrolled by the border guards from the communist regime era.

    Robert then opened up the Museum in Bunker B-S 4 and gave us a full tour of both the upper and lower floors.

    The group that have worked to restore the bunker have done a fantastic job and Robert is an excellent, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. There is also a a really interesting display of weapons on show in the bunker.

    The bunker on its own is free to enter and normally open at the weekends. There is a charge for the full tour in the UAZ-452 which includes the bunker and if you take the tour in the week the bunker is opened by the guide.

    I can genuinely recommend this tour if you are looking to combine something interesting and different to complement the main tourist sights in Bratislava.
