  • There I realize what I want to became when I'll grow. Quaint but not old. a lot of memories inside this museum. Natural history at it's best.  more »
  • It's a museum that will arouse curiosity, especially for children. The trip was guided by arrows, it was a very facilitating application. We went one way and walked around here without worrying. They pay for the photo shoot separately. It's an app I don't understand. Various animals were designed in their own environment and layouts were prepared. There are articles on the screen of every episode, but some of them have not been able to open their English.

  • It's a great museum with a variety of exhibits, especially since was renovated. Gave it 4* because they have a touch screen interface for exhibits that doesn't work very well and it's not fully translated into English for tourists. The price is good, 20 lei/adult. Cheaper than other museums in other countries. If you have 2 hours to spare, I recommend it! :)
  • Really worth visiting if you like to see the fauna and flora of România. I found out about a lot of animals that I didn't know existed in my country. There also is an international exhibit and minerals and stones exhibit. The fossil exhibit is small, but really interesting. The whole experience was enlightening!
