Next door to the Peasant's museum, visiting this museum was the beginning of a wonderfully informative day!
All the displays have information boards with the instructions in Romana and English, some have French and German info. as well, I believe.
It has an extremely wide range of displays from both Romania and the rest of the world. Creatures from the smallest insect to almost the largest mammal.
Wonderful for the children... and adults as well!
When I was there in August 2012, some of the electronic displays were a little slow and/or unreactive. Unfortunately, repairs are expensive for a poor country like Romania. Perhaps they should increase the cheap entrance price.
However, the whole museum was very impressive. I will return there maybe next year.
If you want to take photos, there is a fee.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum because I found it provided educational information at a good level, it did not dumb down for the sake of providing simple easy to understand exhibits. For example there was a model of the cell with a description of its biochemistry and how this supported cellular replication with detailed descriptions of the chromosome division, it was fascinating. All of the exhibits had very well written English language narrative.

The museum began with marine scenes recreated with stuffed fish and they were not very realistic, but as I progressed through the museum into the terrestrial exhibits the displays got better and better. There were some huge skeletons including a whale and a mammoth. I enjoyed the museum and felt that I also learnt a good amount about natural history. It combined interest and education. This place had a bit of everything for everyone, stuffed animals, preservations, geological displays, marine scenes, dinosaur models, exploration history, ecology, anthropology, the micro world and so the list goes on.

I spent over half a day here and finished off by having lunch at their excellent cafe. The only down side was that the cafe allowed smoking and so I took my lunch in the outside section where the air was fresh.

A great experience with three floors of dioramas of the anthropologic flora and fauna of the country. Worth the 10 lei (about three dollars) that it costs to enter.
