  • The big museum of Bratislava is housed in the old town hall of the city. Mostly it covers local history and the development of the city of the city from I think medieval times to present with lots of ...  more »
  • Located on Hlavné namestie, the main square, the municipal or city museum, M'zeum mesta Bratislavy, or MMB, was created in 1868. This museum is one of the 11 properties in the city. It is housed in the old Town Hall and documents the history of the city, from its origins to the present day and the country, created in 1993. 13 rooms divided into two sections. On the ground floor, what we have just mentioned, with archaeological objects of ancient maps, religious paintings and statues in polychrome wood and other furniture and objects. In the basement, the wine museum, with amphoras of sharpeners, Roman vases, medieval manuscripts on the harvest and vineyards. Also to discover the old dungeons that have been restored. The museum also manages eight other specialized museums, with nine permanent exhibitions.

  • 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.
