It's definitely not the most modern natural history museums in the world, but it's pretty good. One of the best museums in Romania. Very easy to reach. And lately, a place to see all sorts of exhibitions. I like it a lot.

There are a lot of exhibits in this museum, which children will love. As an adult, not really impressed by a lot of stuffed animals in glass cases. So, a must see for the children, not so much for the adults.

I visited the Antipa museum in a rainy week-day afternoon and it was almost empty. It was a good experience for my 3 years-old daughter, she really enjoyed some of the animals and the artificial cave. The museum is fairly small so it is excellent for children. It can be visited in less than an hour or if you want... More

Neglected, unkempt museum. Considering the extraordinary way the Romanian people speak English and other foreign languages as the Italian, it remain absurd that almost nothing in this place is written in an intelligible language. It has some potential, but in this way it all goes wasted.

If you're a fan of animals during all stages of natural history this place will offer you a handful of exhibits. Lots of stuffed animals, birds, a collection of butterflies and replicas of dinosaurs and other big animals. I first visited it as a child but coming back is as nice as ever. The museum has been modernized with digital... More

Impressive collections of all kinds of animals; it's been refurbished recently so it looks great. Prices are low, kids have free passes. I highly recommend.

After museum restoration, I visited with my family. I didn't realized how 4 hours passed. See it with your own eyes; is better than hear others story!

Both I and my kid like coming to this museum. We went in the summer again, to see a butterfly exposition. And see again all the animals. No fee for pre-school children.

I was surprised to see how modern and interesting is the Museum Grigore Antipa. It has an endless collection of stuffed animals gathered from all across the globe with names and additional information for each one. The museum also hosts some impressive skeletons of elephants, dolphins, rhinos, whales and monkeys. Here, there is also a statue of the famous Romanian... More
