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 recently visited the museum since it's renovation. It looks very well and has many interesting animals, birds and fishes. There is no entrance fee for kids. Adults pay 20 RON. You can also request a guide for extra money. The information is listed in both Romanian and English language. It takes about 2 hours to visit the museum. Also... More

A recently renewed museum. More interactive exhibitions and interesting educational programs. In certain periods, the museum is hosting exhibitions of live butterflies, reptiles, etc.

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

We really expected this hotel to be awesome based on the recommendation of friends and the high reviews on here. It was neat to learn about the animals native to Romania, but the displays weren't fantastic. It was great that the information was in Romanian and English. It's not as big as we expected and there wasn't much besides the... More

This is an outstanding museum! Displays are arranged by geographical region, and captions are in both Romanian and English. There are also interactive screens you can use at each case to learn more about the animals displayed. The whole place was high tech and engaging. One important note which applies to many of these museums - you have to pay... More

While traveling in Bucharest with kids, you might want to make a stop at this very old and very modern natural science museum in the heart of the Romanian capital. Kids will definitely love it. There are interactive presentations and exhibits of extinct species of animals together with exhibits of different species from around the world. Very similar with the... More

Definitely one of the best, if not the best, museum in the entire city! It was absolutely splendid to see the numerous displays of animals (and a few live ones as well). The building was air conditioned, the staff was helpful and the museum was well maintained, as nothing was falling apart as I've seen in other museums. Coming from... More
