Exhibition of the Museum of the City History

Permanent exhibition of the Museum of the City History focuses on the history of Bratislava inhabitants in the light of historical events from the modern history up to the present day.

The aim of the exhibition is to show visitors the history of Bratislava by means of a selection of its most important historical periods presented as the history of the city’s inhabitants. The composition of Museum’s collections, the Museum’s layout and its limited space determined the narrowed time-period presentation from the Middle Ages until the end of the 1930s. The most significant events that occurred in the city after 1919 up to the present are shown in the film played at the end of the visit.

The exhibition can be divided into several sections: first of all there are historical premises of the Old Town Hall with original architecture and decorations presented as specific artefacts completed only with inevitable exhibits. The presentation of individual topics from the city’s history is provided by means of authentic period items from Museum’s collections and exhibit panels with pictures and texts. It is divided into sets of issues: administration of the city, coronations and nobility, crafts and guilds, trade, industry and businesses, associations, Danube, private life, education, theatre and social life.
