Attraction details
Reviewed 4 November 2015

We accidentally came upon this museum while exploring Bratislava. The museum was closed but a gentleman in the office area allowed us to visit the lower level. The museum is located on Židovská street 17 in an old historical building and is the only reminder of the historic Jewish neighborhood that was red to build the SNP (UFO) Bridge. In the bottom floor, there is a stage couch similar to those used to transport Slovaks to Nazi’s concentration camps. It is dedicated to the approximate 70,000 Holocaust victims from Slovakia. We did not get to see the the two Chevra kadisha jugs which belonged to the burial tradition of the Jewish community. The museum is located in an old Baroque mansion.

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.

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 Slovakia.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and would've given 5 stars were it not for the pretty steep entrance fee.

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 as other ritual items. These pieces are part of a collection that Hittlers forces grabbed up from every city in their path. It is a huge reminder to Never Forget.

A truly beautiful museum that thoughtfully tells the story of both the Jewish Faith and of the Jewish experience in Bratislava. I was shown around by an incredibly welcoming member of staff who even thanked me for my visit. One of my favourite things that I did whilst in Bratislava. Poignant,
