It is worth seeing it. For me, I pass by much of the information they give you since they present it from a evolution point of view. I believe in Creation. Regardless what you believe, the artifacts are something one should see.

The Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History is a great way to discover interesting things about the plants, animals, birds in Romania and the rest of the world, together with their natural ecosystem, nowadays and from the past. The displays show the animals in real size in a very realistic way with their ecosystem. If you want to learn... More

Definitely recommend visiting the museum, it is relatively big and very interesting. We saw it on a cold snowy day so being indoors for an hour or so was a bonus.

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.
