Museums for Fun in Bratislava

I am not a big fan of museums. Many museums exhibit historical artifacts or archaeology housed in windowless shadowed rooms. We found two alternatives in Bratislava, Slovakia that were quite enjoyable. They were open celebrating life and light. Follow the links for further information on the museums.  Scroll down to see a few of our impressions.

Bibiana derived from the acronym BIB for Biennial Illustration Bratislava (Bienále ilustrácií Bratislava) has a museum for children with interesting exhibits on illustration. It is found in the heart of the old city across the square from St. Martin’s Cathedral.

Danubiana is a museum of modern art with a large section devoted to Slovakian and regional artists. It is way out of the city following the Danube toward the southeast.  We reminisced about the Mark Rothko Museum in Daugapils, Latvia from our trip in 2013.
