“Amaizing museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I liked the new way of introducing the birds animals etc. It looks great and for a kid must be a real fascinanting experience. Quite interactive and well designed. The collection of species of any creature from bugs to dinosaurus is impressive!

“Much better than before but still has a way to go...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I often brought my young ones here on cold winter days just to stroll through the exhibits and view the stuffed animals, bugs and stones. It wasn't very stimulating but there wasn't much else to do around town.
Antipa was recently renovated making it a bit more modern, but the exhibits seem mainly the same. This museum still has quite a ways to go before it is at a European standard, but it's a bad weather option to keep in mind.

“Beautiful experience, especially if you have kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

renovated place, an average size museum of natural sciences, personnel very kind. Old historical building, very close to the biggest park in Bucharest (walking distance). Worth a visit.
