It's not the best . there are some details on the stuffed animals that are unpleasant. The stuff is friendly and the technology support is amazing ( if it's working ) i think the shop could use some help and sell better items that are more relied with the exhibition .

I always feel like a child again when visiting this museum. Interesting exhibitions, useful information in a friendly format. Ideal for family visits, could be crowded during holidays.

Been there last weekend with the kids . It was interesting mostly for the kids , with a lot of dioramas ( taxidermy animals , birds and fishes ) , more simplistic than interactive I would say . Overall it worth a visit .

I live nearby and I love this museum. I went there first when I was a little kid and liked it a lot. I still visit it now every 2 years. Go there especially if you have kids.

This is an excellent musem of natural history - the way nature is presented you miss nothing compared to a zoo! The place is a super must for kids but not only.

the museum is one of the most advanced in Romania, in terms of the services it offers and how they are offered. I recommend it for children, as well as for adults and it's a good deal even for those who are not that big of a fans of natural history museums.

It was renovated recently in an european manner, with electonik desks for any informations demanded by the visitors, with a new and beautiful aquariums collection. The staff is hospitable... More

Im sorry but Im very disapointed in the museum. It fits to children between 5-12 years old. Even though they are older than 12, Im sure they will be bored as well. Full of taxidermed animals and I think see those animals alive will be much more fun for everyone.
