  • Area organized on several levels, which the guide I listed, dear, just joined: before you go to the garden, organized especially for children. Then you climb upstairs outlining the various geological eras: especially the small description present at beg of round, relative to the particularity of the "dwarf dinosaurs Romanians". Then you go back downstairs, where there is the most interesting part for me, which are the rooms dedicated to various minerals. 8 she, just under two euros, really well spent.

  • Great varsity of rocks and fossils. Could be more English explanation. Very cheap compared to other museum's​
  • If you like rocks then this is definitely worth a visit - tons of rocks and fossils on display (could be more English explanations) - we spent two hours here and there are a few other museums nearby
  • Might be ok for kids bc the dinosaur models looked like cartoons. Gems poorly displayed w many cases unlit so poor visibility. Almost no english signs. Only redeeming quality is it's only $2 so it's not hard to justify the admission price
  • A really pleasant surprise. Rocks & dinosaurs all mixed in a very classy way.
  • Very interesting museum. Geology at its best.

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
