Cladirea muzeului este absolut superba, pacat totusi ca nu se investeste in renovarea acestui muzeu. Se simte lipsa de buget pe de-a lungul vizitei.. S-ar putea face atat de multe expozitii interactive intr-un muzeu de geologie, atat de multe atractii pentru cei mici si cei mari.. din pacate aici galeriile sunt expuse intr-un mod foarte plat si neatragator, chiar si pentru cineva pasionat este greu sa iti pastrezi interesul..
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.
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!
