The Grigore Antipa Museum at Piata Victoriei is really easy to reach with the subway and some other busses. I simply loved it myself and the kids liked it too as well. All the information is smartly structured so you can easily make connections with what you just saw. The diorams are just alive and the atmosphere speaks by itself.... More

We visited in June 2015 and really enjoyed it. The special exhibit was a room full of amazing spiders from all over the world. The highlight of the museum for us was seeing the displays of fish and other creatures that are found in Romania. The signs were really well done -- easy to read -- and included English.

I personally loved this museum, full of interactive technology, history, and nature. I recommend this place for people with children, but also for anyone who has a thirst for nature's wonders. The temporary exhibit of tarantulas and scorpions are amazing, and I spent almost an hour there, marvelling at all the rare tarantulas and scorpions (they also have a Goliath... More

This building is amazing, clean and easy to navigate with more displays of animals either stuffed or artificial and the spider/scorpion exhibition was very good and worth the extra money

It s very nice museum to visit. The kids were absolutely taken with the place, they loved it, couldn't take them out for two hours. It was good fun for us as well. If you are with your family in Bucharest you shouldn't skip this museum. Enjoy it!!!!
