Muzeul National De Geologie - Review
The first museum in this stately building, about 100 years ago, occupied only the basement. That collection has now expanded to fill 22 rooms. There are 14 main exhibitions cover about 45000 specimens that explore planet formation, plate tectonics, minerals and their uses, the emergence of human life, paleozoology, paleobotany, as well as a comprehensive geologic history of Romania itself. Specimens at the museum include some of the oldest rocks (1.5 billion years old), and oldest known samples of life (600 million years old).

Muzeul National De Geologie, Bucharest Reviews
Packed with information and great displays. You can learn not only about general geology, but focus on Romania, specific regions like the sea or time periods. The gem exhibit is a must, and don't miss the glow-in-the-dark room. If you take the time to explore, you might find temporary exhibits on mining and other goodies. Some of the displays are showing their age, but they were masterfully and lovingly crafted to begin with so they are still extremely enjoyable.
A place to find out very interesting info about evolution of earth and life on it, also of our country land. The exibition of rocks and minerals with their composition is quite large&interesting. Will come back for sure.
If you like rocks this is the place. Not so interactive. But a lot of info.
Historical building opened by Ludovic Mrazek, one of the founders of Romanian geology school. The first headquarter of the National Geological Institute. Now a well organised museum with permanent sections dedicated to rocks occurring, geothectonic history and unique mineral gems, including samples of gold pepites from Apuseni mountains. From time to time popular precious stones and minerals market are organised here.
The pieces in the museum may be beautiful, the building itself has a lot of charm, but the presentation, information are sooo old that it feels like a museum of history, in a negative sense of the word. It feels like nobody really cares about this museum anymore, just as in the cases of so many Romanian institutions or places. Too bad!
