Both I and my kid like coming to this museum. We went in the summer again, to see a butterfly exposition. And see again all the animals. No fee for pre-school children.

This museum suffered some big transformations over the last years and now is one of the most modern and beautiful museum in the city. Also, this museum is located in Victoriei Square, near Museum of Geology, Peasant Museum and 10-15 min walking from Triumph Arch and Herastrau Park.

I went to the Antipa museum for the first time when I was a small kid, but this days I rediscovered it.

This is because it was renovated recently and... More
