Museum Of Natural Sciences, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review
If you have children with you to Brussels then the natural history museum is a nice place to stroll and enjoy the children discover the wonders of the world including dinosaurs. It is located just off the European parliament and there is a big dinosaur outside so it is hard to miss. They also have interactive displays for kids to discover things as well as traditional displays. There are several floors but the grand hall is extensive and you can easily spend two hours just walking through the museum. There is a nice coffee shop on the ground floor together with a nice gift shop.
I didn't quite like the organization of the exposition, it is difficult to move around the various sections of the museum in an informed way or to plan the timing of the visit. Great dinosaurs' section, with stunning fossils. The interactive panels and the videos in the evolutionary section, on the top floor, are very didactic, interesting and entertaining.
A great museum for kids and adults too. There is a huge exhibition of rockes, all kind of. There are interesting exhibiotions with dinosaurs, animals, plants. Wheel chair place. Free toilet. A wardrobe.
Dinosaur collection is definitely worthwhile to see. The other collections are not that special in comparison to various natural history museums I already visited. The entry price is rather low however. All by all a decent visit that takes about 2 till 2,5 hours.
First came here in 2003. Is now much improved ....very good exhibits for dinsosaurs and human evolution. Good for all ages. Easy to find and get round. Well done
