Located on Zidovska Street on the edge of the Old Town and near the steep approaches to the Castle, one may easily miss this undistinguished mansion housing the Jewish Culture Museum as it is marked only by a small sign on the wall, probably to...More

I love this museum. There is an interesting, (poynts=interesting from jidish), museum. The jewish culture is very nice, magic, but little bit sad too. In this museum are very nice thinks, an there is very nice exposition too. I recommend you, to visit this museum.

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.

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

The artifacts are many, the corresponding information is lacking. The guide understood my questions in English but was rarely willing to answer in English. If you plan to go here, make sure you have a knowledgable guide who speaks your language. I was bored here....More
