Located right by metro stop and the Muzeul National De Geologie. Each floor is different. Fairly interactive. Loads of information on Romaina and its wildlife and ecosystems.

Very nice for children and for adult, as well. We loved it and also, we liked that they are planning to extend the museum with a part which is dedicated to the human body.
