Packed with exhibits (including the obligatory Jurassic skeletons), the Antipa will keep kids of all ages - and their parents - occupied for a good couple of hours. 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.
