Wow great place, if you like dinosaurs then you will love this place. All round entertaining and has other levels of different exhibitions. Anyone of any age will enjoy this place and again there are full dinosaur bones here. There is a little history of the dinosaurs that they found and how they were extracted. I must admit from one...

Really nice museum. Found everything quite interesting, some really exhibitions there. I'd definitely recommend going whilst you're in Brussels.

Fantastic place! One of the best museums I have visited. Was perfect for our children's attention spans... So interactive and informative ... A delightful surprise that it's free on the first day of every month.

A very good place to visit in Brussels, specially when you have kids with you. It has a vast number of animals, plants, fishs, rocks, minerals and other things that show the richness of the variety of life on Earth. You have to see the collection of Dinosaurs and fossil relics. Plan a 3 or 4 hour visit to see... More

Great place to visit. Very interactive so it is engaging for all. Covered everything you can imagine. Certain parts did not have English translation which made it difficult to know exactly what is going on but we got by. Gift shop and cafe are pretty good.

It was very interesting and easy to through at your own pace. There were a few school groups but it wasn't very busy.

This is a great place to hang out for 2-3 hours - lots of kids running about enjoying themselves. The dinosaur exhibition is great, plenty of full-size skeletons, nice little video clips beside many of the exhibits too. The current History of Humans exhibit was really good (not particularly interesting for kids though as it's just skeleton after skeleton comparing... More

Excellent dinosaur exhibits based on Belgian finds. A lot of money was spent on showing how the bones were found. The geology exhibit could be refreshed and is not in english, so I gave up translating eventually for my son. A new section on urban nature was good, and in four languages. Not too pricey unless you have many kids... More

We put Brussels on our itinerary specifically to come and see the dinosaur collection and we weren't disappointed. Our 3 year old is dinosaur-mad and was in heaven. Rest of displays were good - the gems / rocks being the best of them. 7 euros for entry a bargain. Was going to give 5 stars but café was inadequate (no... More
