What a great place!

Maybe it's just us. Maybe we're easily impressed. Maybe it is the fact that we've been living in Asia for the past 9 years and are a little culture starved. But this place was... read more

This is the most modern of the Bucharest museums with touchscreen exhibits and English interpretations throughout. It is also air-conditioned, a real plus in a Bucharest summer!

I visited the Grigore Antipa National Museum twice so far. I liked it every time. A place where you can see many interesting things and learn a lot. The prizes can be smaller.

I loved the diversity of the items exposed and the realistic look! The lounge cafe inside is wonderful and the shop is ok. I would have loved to see more items and especially specific items in the shop. The museum itself looks brilliant and it's a very nice and interesting experience!

The museum floor plan is well laded out and easy to follow. The displays are easy to understand and there were a lot of children who were enjoying the museum. After entering, you go down a level (-1) and the displays are about Romanian Geography, Wildlife, Nature. The dioramas are vivid and all the displays have an interactive touch screen... More

A modern museum, which happily combine information technology with classic presentations of fauna and flora.
