Established in 1834, and named for the first Romanian to reach the North Pole, the museum possesses the largest collections of mineralogical, zoological and paleontological artifacts and specimens in the country. This is one of the best museums of its kind in Europe. The exhibits are all extremely interesting especially the dinosaur fossil collection and the butterfly collection. Most of the exhibits are interactive and hands on. Kids will especially love the artificial cave system. Visit the Museum website for upcoming special temporary exhibitions. The most of the exhibits focus on Romanian Natural History, there is also an extensive exploration of the marine life in the Black Sea, the Arctic Seas, the Atlantic, and the Indo-Pacific.

Grigore Antipa National Museum Of Natural History, Bucharest Reviews
The best natural history Museum I've seen so far. It features three floors of diverse landscapes from all over the world filled with stuffed animals and touch-screens explaining each and every of them in English and Romanian. A few halls explaining the human body, showcasing different nations and several prehistoric skeletons go as a bonus. Kids liked it a lot as well as myself.
The museum lives up its name, it's indeed a very nice museum, very modern and interactive. I really appreciated the fact that you can interact with the exposition through tabs that offer information. The cave section in particular it's really authentic. The staff was great. Furthermore the prices are great, for students the entrance is free and for those who got the ISIC card the entrance fee its 5 lei.
I came with high expectations, which is normally a bad thing, but I’d say my expectations have been exceeded, on many levels. It's just the feeling, really. I know I’ve always been a very positive person, been able to achieve whatever I wanted to do. This still gives you even more. It’s definitely worth it. It’s the experience you deserve. This is a lot, lot deeper - well worth going for.
I was really impressed about this museum. I visited tgis many times as a kid and I thought this time would be boring, but except presentation of different habitats, human body and evolution they have a story for every section. These board are nicely presented with the text exact the right size to be easily read. They also have touch screens to identify each animal and a short story about it. I loved they emphasise on ecology and human alteration of wildlife. They also have some special exhibitions which I encourage to see. For the main part 2h it's enough and to visit everything you will need about 4h.
My sister and I liked a lot the museum. They are many animals presented, from all over the world; and a few skeletons too; a nice insects collection ( we enjoyed the most the butterflies, from insects collection); then a minerals and gems collection. If you plan to make a lot of pictures ( and they're many lovelu exponates that you will want to save in a picture as memory) , then you will need at least 3 hours to visit this museum. They are public toilets, and they're free. What we also liked was the souvenirs shop, where you can buy small minerals or gems, some raw, some shaped ( key chains, necklaces, bracelets, etc) or some put as leaves onto marvelous miniature trees. Oh, and we also liked ( and bought ) some packs of playing cards from there, quite cheap, with beautiful images from the museum, each card having a different image.
