The thing I singled Museum Grigore Antipa's paleontological collection. In fact, here is exposed the most complete fossil skeleton of Deinotherium in the world. It also has rich collections from many areas of nature, but the day was spent in the museum provides a complete picture of the natural world that surrounds us....

This museum is totally different of what it was 6-7 years ago. It is reorganized and more accessible. Also the information are very clear and "friendly". It contains lots of animals from all over the world and they are very well described. Also the floor dedicated to the civilizations is perfect for understanding the past. A drawback is that some...

The Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History is a great museum, with a 3 floor collection of animals representing the biodiversity of Romania, and some other ecosystems of the world (e.g. the Amazon). If you want to use the locker make sure you have 1 euro on you, or 50 cents of leu.
