This museum is a nice option to go if you have kids. I went with my 4 year-old daughter, and she loved it. We all have the chance to learn more about all sort of animals, in different parts of the world. The scenery is very realistic, and there are complete explanations about the animals, both in English and Romanian.... More

I haven't been to Antipa since I was a toddler, so I was super excited when they renovated it and when I got the opportunity to take a free tour (had to pay for the photos I took, though).

Overall a nice museum, lots of well presented stuffed animals, some of which I didn't even know existed. There is also a fantastic skeleton of a prehistoric giant elephant

I have read and heard that the place has been recently renovated and I guess it shows in the layout and the structure of the whole place. The place has really got impressive collection and definitely takes about two to three of your hours to complete the place. The sections and the blocks are made easy for effective maneuvering.
