I remembered it as being a little rusty- meaning an old and unattractive museum, but now, at my second visit, I accnouledged that it has a new vibe in it. This is because it was renovated recently and... More

My wife and I had visited most of the museums along the main areas in Bucharest, the final one being the Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History; we saw a sign to the café and as we were very hungry, thought we should at least have a look. It was a great surprise, nicely appointed, good menu and drinks... More

I've visited this place together with some friends. Being a fan of nature and animals, I found it fascinating. It has some really cool expos and the entry fee is ridiculously low for what you get to see. An educational experience for sure! Don't forget to bring you kids!

I've been here just shortly after it was reopened. I also visited the museum long ago, during my childhood, and the place really needed a renovation. Now it looks really good, the exhibition is outstanding in my opinion and well arranged. Information is offered in both Romanian and English and there are also interactive screens. It's mandatory to visit when... More
