This was our first time visiting a Natural Sciences museum (for sure not the last) but the excitement comes not only because it was a first, but also on the fact that Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels is really impressive and with a large variety of dinosaurs fossils! Plenty of fun and learning for all ages. Definitely recommended!

If you are interested in Dinosaurs then this is the museum for you. The exhibits are fantastic and numerous; you can spend several hours here if you want. Also, there are loads of other non-dino exhibits over several floors to keep you interested. Definitely worth a visit.

The expectations were high, but the reality is a bit of a disappointment. The museum is a bit of a maze, with no real path to follow, small and a bit boring. On the other side, the gardens near the museum are great.

What a treat! This museum had more fossils than any other dinosaur museum that I had been to. It was inexpensive and the building was clean and enlightening. I would definitely go back!

Apart from all the rooms (about dinosaurs, all animals and species, etc...) wath I didn’t remember is the hive glazed into the museum... More

I was told this museum was good for kids with their dinosaur exhibits. They were right. In addition, there were many other interactive exhibits, explanations in three languages, a video on life on earth over millions of earth, and lots of spaces in which to explore with kids (and be a kid yourself). Not quite the same standard as the... More

We had a great time at the museum with two children aged 1 and 4. It is very beautiful, with lots if interesting things to see and bits for the children to do. There was a baby animals exhibit which they especially enjoyed. Slightly disappointed some areas were closed for renovation, and tickets were still full price, but they are... More
