For me the highlights is the Deinotarherium skeleton. Very impresive! The temporary exhibitions were funny (the butterfly one) and very interesting (the spider one). The permanent exhibition is based 90% on taxidermy. They give you an idea of the Romanian fauna but the dioramas have seen better days and look a bit sorry.

This is a great place for children. They can see dinosaurs, wild animals, bugs and lizards. It is highly interactive. Temporary collections are also interesting. Currently there are a Live Butterflies and a Live Spiders collections open.

The museum is interesting especially for the little ones. However, considering that it was rehabilitated and modernized, it could have been much better than it is right now. Museums like this have far more potential.

It's such a nice place. There are interactive panels with information in front of each item, the staff is kind, the temperature is always just right, and some exhibits are just breathtaking. Pricing is also great!

You do not have to miss it if your are visiting Bucharest! It is in the most beautiful part of Bucharest, close to other museums. Don't miss Kiseleff avenue:)

Our children enjoyed it very much. A large exhibition of all types of animals, with explanations and many touchscreens to explore. Two to three hours can suffice for the visit.

I love this place! I've been to the Grigore Antipa museum many times and enjoyed each visit, whether it was years ago as child or even now in my 20s. They've done it up in recent years, the interactive screens are great for learning more about the animals exhibited. I think it's a great pass-time for everyone, children and adults... More
