  • 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.

  • People are nice and helpfull but the museum looks dusty. almost no changes from the communist era.
  • Well priced, passionate staff. Some of the displays are now dated but a very good collection and a pleasant hour
  • Well organized exhibition. Good intertwinning with the relics of human history and Romanian landscape specifics. The only minus is that it is rather small. Recommended for children abive 7 years old, for better understanding of the exhibits.
  • Over 80,000 samples of rocks, gems and fossils. Was told to pay at end. At the end dropped money in big donation box. DONT DO IT.. A lady approached me wanting payment. The petrified wood in front outside was interesting.
  • It s a perfect place for children and also for people who want to learn about all kinds of stones, dinosaurs, fossil and the evolution of life/humanity.

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.
