Grigore Antipa National Museum Of Natural History - Review
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. The Southeast Asian bird exhibits are excellent. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bucharest itinerary 1 day.

Grigore Antipa National Museum Of Natural History, Bucharest Reviews
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.
An excellent museum. Neatly organised and easily understandable exhibitions. The viewer will become instantly hypnotized by them and if not careful can spend over 4 hours inside to grasp everything in one go. Were it not limited by space, the museum could rival with many other European counterparts.
A very nice museum, but small. It needs more artifacts. Is good for parents with kids to visit, to learn about animals and history. The informational panel are a great thing, but not all of them have English description. They have an ok souvenir shop, mostly for kids.
Great experience. “Grigore Antipa” National Museum of Natural History is one of the oldest research institutions in the field of biodiversity and public education. It is in the same time one of the well-known and highly appreciated “databases” due to the Museum’s collections, some of them valuable assets of the worldwide thesaurus.
Impressive museum that teaches us plenty presented in an interesting way. There is no time to get bored. The represented animal habitats are very realistic, there are fossils and a section with natural precious stones.
