Not a very big museum but fun to see and check out. It has a simulated cave and stuffed animals amd some rock. Cool enough for a 50 min visit

Rainy day, having kids and nothing to do? Go there! There are a lot of things kids can do. There are still a lot of things to be improved but it is recently renovated, with touch screens in front of every scenery - because there you will find not only relicves of animals, but replications of their habitat.

Antipa Museum is for sure the best museum in Romania. After its renovation, it offers a modern view of the natural history of Romania and not only. A must-go when in Bucharest !

To me it is the best animal museum. It is small but very clean, well managed and very cheap entrance ticket. You can have discount of you are student. A small problem is that you are not allowed to take photographs, but really awesome for anyone irrespective of the age.

I never knew there were so many species of birds, mammals and fish in Romania. All beautifully presented in well crafted dioramas (they have preserved the first diorama in the world -1908)

Each time I visit my mom in Bucharest I ask my children where do they want to go? Despite the fact they already know this wonderful place their answer it's the same: "Antipa". This museum it's so rich and complex. The international guide it's well designed and the environment is familiar and warm .... I warmly recommend you to visit!!!

I used to live in Bucharest and visited this with my school over 25 years ago. When we visited as a family with young kids recently, this was a GREAT surprise. It is au pair with any large museum in North America. If you can visit during regular week days, it is a lot less crowded. Very instructive for kids... More
