  • Natural history museum with a small ticket fee. The photos are allowed for an additional fee. Ideal for guys. Nice job but unfortunately most of the exhibits are fake.

  • The place will be ideall to go especially if you are planning a rellaxing day out with your kids. Stuffed animals, well reproduced live scenery, all put together for the entertainment of the visitor. 
  • This museum should definitely be on the top of the list of things to do in Bucharest. Great for adults and children alike.
