The museum is not open on a Monday, but well worth a visit as it tells the history of the city. there was also a very interesting collection in the cellars of torture instruments from the middle ages (brought some tears to my eyes!).

Easy to find, and only charging a small amount for admission, this is a great way to avoid any bad weather and check out the local history, There's various rooms detailing different period's in Bratislava's history. It's worth the climb to the clock tower for the views alone, but also to see Faust's study. In the basement there are periodic... More

The building is at the service for ministerial works and really not a touristic site at all. Very simple and like many places in Bratislava, bad maintained.

Excellent place to sit and relax, and to walk artound. The place has many interesting things to see. What you will like the most is the story behind it. Do take a guide.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit here. I'd expected a quick little wander round but it just kept going. I was the only person in that morning so i wandered up the tower alone - great 360 views over the city and across to the Castle. The chapel is quite beautiful and there are numerous artifacts charting the city's history.

Well worth a visit. The courtyard is nice and the museum inside takes a surprisingly long time to work your way around. Information in the tower about the history of the city is worth looking at.
