I was treated with extreme rudeness and disrespect from the woman at the entrance to the special exhibit. I politely asked how much a ticket would cost, if it was free, and where I could buy one. Apparently these simple questions offended her, and rather than answering me, she sarcastically insulted me and continued with degrading comments. I've never experienced anything like this at a museum anywhere in the world. I was expecting to enjoy a pleasant day visiting museums in Bratislava, and this really soured my impression. Despite buying a ticket later, I only visited the main hall and not the special exhibit, because I didn't want to interact with this angry, troubled person again. I wonder why a museum would employ someone so disrespectful and unwilling to answer questions from visitors.

Nice and interesting museum we could go up to the Tower it was beautiful. Then, at one point, there is an interaction game puzzle in one room. My daughter sat on the side cupboard with all the pieces, and I understand now that it was not allowed, even though it wasn't written anywhere. One lady with long blond hair came in the room shouting at us, We understood this was not allowed, but the manner was totally out of order. She also reprehend us because we left some pieces of the puzzle on the board (while trying which one would fit) and also got upset shouting because some pieces overlap each other in the board (?) . We were completely astonished by the manner and the rudeness of this lady, my child had ADHD started to cry as she was completely shocked and petrified.

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
