Very realistic

Nice museum with realistic and vast animal selection. Minerals could maybe be presented to be more interesting. A large butterfly collection, if you're into them.

I think this museum is great for children, but adults will not be bored. The dioramas are well done, the natural environment of the species is accurately reproduced, the animals are correctly displayed to see their main features. There is detailed information about every animal (except, perhaps, the items in jars of formaldehyde). The butterfly collection is remarcable.

Very popular museum located in Victoriei Square . Is a good museum for kids as there are many stuffed animals to see from the ancient times. Not expensive ticket.

I'm not young, but I work with children and I can tell if a place is informative enough for kids to learn or not be bored. This place has these components, although I would suggest that they have areas for the kids to do activities after so that whatever they learned in the museum can be consolidated.

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). I must say.. I was kinda disappointed.. They might have renovated the place, but the taxidermy exhibits are old and in... More
