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

It's one of the best museums I've ever seen in Romania and a welcome change from dusty exhibits without any captions. The National Museum of Natural History offers very neatly and well-arranged exhibits with accurate and informative information. It makes use of modern technology to complete the experience. It's really worth a visit and also very suitable for children.

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. You will... More

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 !
