I visited the museum many times and I think that overall it's very interesting and it's worth visiting.

It is only about 15 minutes walking from Romana square . You can visit the... More

The thing I singled Museum Grigore Antipa's paleontological collection. In fact, here is exposed the most complete fossil skeleton of Deinotherium in the world. It also has rich collections from many areas of nature, but the day was spent in the museum provides a complete picture of the natural world that surrounds us....

It contains lots of animals from all over the world and they are very well described. Also the floor dedicated to the civilizations is perfect for understanding the past. A drawback is that some...
