  • It's a great museum with a variety of exhibits, especially since was renovated. Gave it 4* because they have a touch screen interface for exhibits that doesn't work very well and it's not fully translated into English for tourists. The price is good, 20 lei/adult. Cheaper than other museums in other countries. If you have 2 hours to spare, I recommend it! :)
  • Really worth visiting if you like to see the fauna and flora of România. I found out about a lot of animals that I didn't know existed in my country. There also is an international exhibit and minerals and stones exhibit. The fossil exhibit is small, but really interesting. The whole experience was enlightening!
