A relatively small but still interesting museum. The exhibits are displayed well and the supplied information (I'm English and Romanian) useful. Highlight is the first area describing the importance of Romania's fauna.

Very much improved. Worth a short visit to this museum. Not very crowded, a good 1 hour activity. Not as fancy as the London Natural history museum

We love museums and have visited quite a number of these so far but Antipathy takes the number 1 place! So many species to see from all the continents, some of them I have never seen before. Amazing experience, we loved it.

I loved being there. I guess this is one of the best museums we have in Bucharest. It's not just what you see, it's also the experience itself.

After all the refurbishment and restoration it is a great place to visit and explore with your children. Brilliant for teaching them a bit of biology in a nice environment.

Grigore Antipa museum is the best and the most visited museum in Bucharest. Every weekend they have kids activities and a lot of temporary exhibits, so if you are lucky you can see some of the great exhibits in the world. Now they discovered the biggest flying dinosaur in the world and will be exposed there.

I wanted to visit the Peasant Museum located next door but it is closed during renovations. I opted to check out this instead and was glad I did. It is very well organized with everything in both Romanian and English. I particularly enjoyed the exhibits about the animals in different habitats around the world on the lower level. It was...

Situated in Victoriei Square, next to the Romanian Government building, Antipa Museum is probably the most interesting museum in Bucharest...free entrance for children...
