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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    This is a big building right near the main church. It looks quite old and interesting. It houses a museum now but I bet it has had a lot of other purposes in the past.

    This museum is located in the palace of the former Hungarian Noble Apponyi family. As the name suggests, the museum is laid out with furnishing when the family lived there. The museums covers all the rooms you’d expect from a house and each room also has some description of the items in the room. The furnishing are a nice mix of Rococo and French Empire style.

    I paid for a combined ticket when visiting the Bratislava City Museum which got me into this and the Museum of Viticulture. The museum is worth a look as part of the combined ticket and if you’ve not seen examples of this kind of building, but not a must-see.

    This is a tiny gallery tucked away in a courtyard. I had never heard of Arthur Fleishchmann but was fascinated by his range of work and pioneering use of Perspex. I can imagine that this is not everyone's cup of tea and so no point in visiting if you are not an art lover.
    The ticket also gives entry to the Hummel (composer) museum but the opening hours of the latter seem a bit random so despite returning a couple of times, it wasn't open.

    This is my favourite gallery in Bratislava with interesting design exhibitions. I was here with my student many times, but came alone, too.
    My last visit was not so nice - there was a young man at the entrance with boring face and as-less-as-possible-information-need-to-tell-behavior. BUT at the past i found here only smiling faces and nice ladies during workshops. Worth to visit if you are interested in design.

    The childhood home of Hummel has been turned into a museum of the child prodigy pianist and composer, a contemporary and friend of Beethoven, and a student of Mozart. If you like Hummel’s music, you will probably find this small two-room museum interesting. On display are some of Hummel’s instruments, manuscripts and pictures, etc. Admission is 3 euros for adults, and access is through the CD store in front. There is also a Hummel monument in front of the German Embassy nearby.

    This was a surprisingly nice and peaceful museum presenting the best of Eastern European optical art. Lots of great pictures, still possible to go through in an hour. Recommended! The youngsters also liked a lot, their kind of art.

    As per the name, this museum is about wine. The museum is actually quite small. The first floor has two rooms, one cover general information about winemaking and the history of winemaking in Slovakia, and the other about a well known family of winemakers. To be honest, as much as I went through the exhibits and descriptions, I didn’t learn much about winemaking at all.

    The other floor seems to be dedicated to varieties of Slovak wines as they have a huge collection for sale, which didn’t interest me. I visited this museum as part of the combined ticket for the Bratislava City Museum, otherwise I would not have visited

    I think you need to be interested to make it a worthwhile visit.

    In the grounds of the museum there is a water garden/play area that is ideal for young children especially on a hot day. It has a purpose built water feature with fountains that children can play in alongside traditional play throngs such as swings and slides. There is also a sheltered picnic area for family picnics and birthday parties etc. These things are all modern in designs and very recently installed.

    If this was helpful, please leave me a helpful vote. Thanks.
