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. I took several photos of things I wanted to know more about and did some research once I got home.
For example, there are large wedding rings with that look like houses. Besides the wedding ceremony, when were these used? I have since learned when they were used and for how long.
Go here to see interesting artifacts then learn what you can about them afterwards.

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.

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 survived through these oppressive years. We all enjoyed the visit and the exhibits. Especially poignant as the museum is only one of two Jewish buildings left in Bratislava and this building was actually a family home.

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.
