Not only London's Natural Gallery can introduce you the miracles of nature. Bucharest hosts one of worlds greatest collections that will expose to some of the most impressive miracles of nature. In a very modern set-up, museum has been recently renovated and upgraded. Enjoy!

Really nice museum, a lot of information available about each item. Touchscreens which explain a great deal of things in many languages are available in front of each item. The exhibits are really lifelike, and great looking overall. The building is clean. It's an experience for really anyone.

This is a great experience for kids. There are all sorts of animals and exhibits which can show them how the fauna was in the past or also can teach them anatomy. The most fascinating part for them are the dinosaurs and the big elephants skeletons. As an adult you can also have fun thanks to the digital effects.

The museum offers an insight to the national history of Romania and the World. The exhibits are very real and there are touchscreens where you can find out information about the items displayed.

Nice museum with realistic and vast animal selection. Minerals could maybe be presented to be more interesting. A large butterfly collection, if you're into them.
