Museum of Clocks - House of the Good Shepherd, Bratislava
The House of the Good Sheperd ("Dom U dobrého pastiera" in Czech) might in fact be most interesting from the outside despite the Museum of Clocks which you will find if you go inside. The house itself has an odd look as it is very narrow in one end. However, it is one of the few buildings in Bratislava to be seen in its original state from earlier times. It was built between 1760 and -65.

On our way to the castle in the old Jewish Quarter of the city, we spotted the narrow yellow building which is the Museum of watches.The museum is open from 10am to 5pm until 6pm on the weekends.It was closed on the Holiday we were there.
I can't say I'm interested in old clocks and time pieces, although they have a great collection in this little museum. I was rather attracted by the look of this narrow Rococo building and its sweet name The Good Shepherd's House. I simply wanted to check its interior and paying the 50 SK for the ticket was well worth it! The house was errected in 1760 and is quite pleasant to tour. It's rooms and staircase are really tiny so only a small group of people is let in at a time. Open 9:30-16:30 (except Mondays)
The area was once a Jewish quarter, hence the street name: Zidovska (Jewish).
On the way up the hill to the castle in what was once known as the Jewish Quarter of the city, you might notice this skinny, yellow Rococo building. Inside you'll find the city's clock museum which highlights many timepieces made in the 18th and 19th centuries, mostly by watchmakers in Bratislava. Many of the watches are exceedingly flamboyant in design making them interesting to look at in the museum setting, even if you wouldn't dare wear one on your wrist. The museum is open from 10am to 5pm and 11am to 6pm on the weekends.
On the way up to Bratislava Castle is the small but interesting Museum of Clocks, featuring clocks from all periods and from all over the world.
Hours are 10 AM - 5 PM Wednesday to Monday. Admission is charged.
This lovely well kept yellow building houses the Clock Museum. The house itself is Rococo style and was built in 1760. It is so narrow that each floor only allows a tiny room.
The Museum holds a collection of clocks and it’s opened every day from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Unfortunately i arrived too late and was so upset, … being a watch lover i’m sure i’d love this place. So now i have the perfect excuse to visit Bratislava again: how could i miss Clock Museum? It’s a must see for me, so i will surely go back!!
This small and sweet building is right on the way from castle and you can stop there for a while and listening to the sound of watches. :) Yes, there is a museum of approximately 60 watches in collection of various siye and shape and some of them are still in use :) Most of them were made in Bratislava (Pressburg at that time) and Bratislva was a great cente rof clockmakers at that time in old Austro-Hungarian Empire. It is very small inside so don't go with a big tourist group inside ;) you should feel like picked cucumber then. And there is also a souvenir's shop but very expensive. So if you want to see more and save some money, buy souvenirs in the centre of the city.
Opened Tu-Su 10 am - 5 pm (May-Sept)
Sa-Su 11 am - 6 pm (May-Sept)
Tu-Su 9.30 am - 4.30 pm (other season)
If you like clocks it´s a fun place to visit. It´s not very big, but the ladies are really nice there, though they almost don´t speak a word of english.
