I loved going from the lower floor and starting with the marine life and moving through the upper floors with habitats, different continents, different ages, and reaching to rooms about Grigore Antipa, the Universe, precious stones, the human body and all kinds of skeletons in different stages of life. I found it very interesting and spent quite some time reading... More

It is a very interesting museum with a lot of animals and for each animal you have a lot of information available.

Went with my friends and we had a good surprinse of how the time passed in there. We actually had fun for about 3 hours but it was really interesting. Though I felt sad about all about those animals who could have been alive now in nature where they belong. Another minus for my experience were the kids who yelled... More

Secondly, it has been fully modernized with all the digital new discoveries to make your trip inside one of the most interesting... More

Most museums in Bucharest are closed on Monday and Tuesday but fortunately the National Museum of Natural History was open on a very wet Tuesday morning. What an excellent way to pass a few hours in the dry. The first part of the exhibits related to fauna found in Romania. The exhibits are very well produced with a touch screen... More

The museum was very nice. It was clean and somehow organized. I like the sector with the human body. I was very disappointed when I learn that the animals were real. Especially for the little ones..

What impressed me about this museum were the dioramas. They have gone to huge lengths to present the exhibits in natural looking surroundings and doing natural things. Ok, some of the taxidermy wasn't so great but it was still a comprehensive exhibition of Romanian wildlife as well as from other parts of the word. The were also the bones of... More
