Been to many museums across Europe ,and I know what a good museum is. This is not good. It's two rooms with a few statues and a limited text with no continuity.

When we discovered a Jewish museum existed in Bratislava, we added it to our must-see list. It's open at 11:00 a.m. every day except Shabbat. When we arrived, we thought we might not be able to tour the museum because nothing in the entrance lobby...More

This kind of museum is only one in Slovakia. In this museum you can find basic information about Jews in Slovakia and history. Nice but only basic

I found the exhibit to be wonderfully thought out and very well presented. Gives you a deep look into how the Jewish community were first settled here and all the tortures they had during the 1st and 2nd world war. I didn't have anyone showing...More

Lovely little museum with interesting exhibitions. It was difficult to find only because it was shrouded in scaffolding etc. and the sign couldn't be seen. So we walked straight past it and had to ask directions.

7 Euro entrance fee and well worth it. Really helpful staff who went out of their way to provide more information. This museum takes you through the early years of Jewish settlement right up to the Nazi and Communist years. Staggering that so many artifacts...More

There's a free exhibition downstairs about Jews throughout the ages in Slovakia, mainly focusing on the persecution and auschwitz. Then if you pay the €7 you go upstairs and can see many lovely artefacts and learn a lot more about the religion and Jews from...More

This is a very moving exhibition. Slovakia was the first or one of the first countries to side with and join Hittler. As a result the Jewish community was decimated. Silver Torah crowns, Rimonim and Yads by the dozen are all on display as well...More
