Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History [Muzeul de Istorie Naturală Grigore Antipa]

Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History

One of Romania's finest museums, and one of the best natural history museums in Europe, which recently benefited from a three year, €14 million refit. Packed with terrific exhibits (including the obligatory dinosaur skeletons) which will keep kids of all ages and their parents occupied for the best part of the day, there are all sorts of hands-on, interactive displays, as well as 3D films, artificial caves and - in the basement - a thorough guide to the incredible amount of animal and plant life native to Romania. The building which houses it all is itself worthy of note, purpose built in 1908 at the behest of Grigore Antipa, a noted Romanian naturalist who then set-up and ran the museum for almost five decades until his death in 1944.

Admission 20 lei, pensioners 10 lei, children/students 5 lei.
