“Interesting and well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I very enjoyed visiting the museum.
They have huge skeletons of dino's, gemstones, very old fossiles (original ones and replica's) and more. The staff seemed quite uninterested, but that doesn't matter that much since I was interested in the objects they have and not in the staff. If you are in Brussels you should take an hour or 2-3 to visit the museum.

“Worth a visit- well worth the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Really good. Defiantly worth the visit. Loved the dinosaurs and the museum is absolutely huge. Loads of interactive things to do however quite a few of the computers didn't work. Other than that it was a great visit. Although most natural history museums are similar, the dinosaur section made this one stand out. Almost all displays are in english and there's so much to learn! Make sure you leave plenty of time

“HUGE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The museum is very large, with plenty to see. We didn't end up getting round it all and did not pay for the extra special exhibition which is currently about baby animals. We went mid-week in the afternoon and it was quiet so you could look round at a leisurely pace.
There is a lot of stuffed animals so would not recommend if you do not like them.
