I believe it’s not the first time I’ve said that when it comes to museums my favorite ones are the unconventional museums. A museum can be considered unconventional from many points of view.
The theme of the museum, the location or even the building itself, are a few of the aspects that can label a museum as unconventional.
A perfect example in this regard is the Museum of Arms in Bratislava. As the name suggests, this museum displays a collection of weapons, firearms and military uniforms. One of the most interesting aspects about this museum is the fact that it is situated inside Michael’s Tower, which is one of the main tourist attractions in Bratislava.
The tower is built on three floors and the exhibits are displayed in three small rooms. In order to reach the top of the tower the tourists must visit the museum first. Michael’s Tower offers a lovely panoramic view over the historic center of Bratislava and its surroundings.
Most tourists don’t even know about the existence of the Museum of Arms and they find out about it only after they pay the entrance fee.
However, this small museum is really interesting and it makes your climbing to the top quite exciting. You should know that you have to pay an entrance ticket to the Museum of Arms, but as a bonus the ticket also includes the possibility to visit the Museum of Pharmacy, which is situated nearby.
In case you choose to visit Michael’s Tower you will enjoy a wonderful panorama over the city and a short lesson of history. Take a look at the following pictures and you will get a clear idea about what this museum has to offer!
