  • The whole museum is very nice for everyone to look at. They took the time to compile an ice hockey area to show Slovakia’s ice hockey history. Very nice and complete statistics and information. The museum then has some English information but not all. The underground dungeons are probably not child friendly unless they want to learn about stuff like that. Lots of torture machines and the such... The tower is a nice walk up around 4-5 stories up narrow stairwells by worth the trek up to see the view.
  • Eye-catching collection but no descriptions nor explanations in English. The ladies were nice even though they didn't speak English, but were a little over emphatic when pointing the next step of the exhibitions. Worth it of you have the Bratislava card.
  • Nice.Probably the most interesting museum in Bratislava.
  • Very small but 5 stars. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who is in town and has a few hours to pass. It is easy to find and access and for people of all ages and abilities. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and you know you are in good hands from start to finish. This is one thing that is not to be missed.
  • Nice museum with a lot of old stuff. Definitely visit the tower as well.
