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.

    Surprisingly it was bigger than expected and really interesting. Alot of Slovakian and Czech cars, motorcycles and there are trains plus there is a little boat model museum. There is nicely translated into English. I definitely recommend.

    Very interesting and informative tour of reconstructed bunker from 1937. Libor gave a detailed presentation in English of the functionality and corresponding historical events. Highly recommend for the WW2 enthusiasts! I believe tours are only on Saturdays.

    For a museum of only moderate size, there is a lot to see here: not just cars, trucks and trains, but oddball vehicles designed for special purposes, such as a wheeled conveyence made for WW I amputees to drive themselves.

    An effort is made to put things in context, too. There's a mock-up railroad office complete with a uniformed mannequin to show you what was needed to run the trains on time "back in the day," along with many smaller exhibits showing authentic railroad attire and equipment to give a good idea of how it all came together. I really enjoy those "you are there" type displays that convey a lot, not only about the work and the equipment, but about the way everything was set up and closely monitored to get the job done well and on time.

    A definite highlight is the big locomotive parked outside on the tracks just behind the museum, so you can see it "up close and personal." Also at the back, affixed at eye level to the brick wall of the museum so you can note the progress is a series of illustrations and photos showing the different crossings of the Danube over the years, from the first one to the most recent. It's an interesting sidelight, something I did not expect to see here, but I found very interesting.

    Staff when we visited were friendly and helpful, and they spoke some English, which was greatly appreciated.

    I think this would be an enjoyable museum for most people, including children, and so I recommend you consider a visit while you are in Bratislava. It is right near the train station. You can ask there if you don't immediately see the entrance.

    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.

    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 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.

    Without Budapest Card I will have no wish to spend the money for this place. Is not easy to find and collection is not so big.

    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.
