Here you have a great chance to learn about the diverse fauna around the world and Romania. It is interactive, equiped with a lot of multimedia tools. You need at least 2 hours to visit properly the entire museum.

It was beautiful. The arrangement was perfect, you dont need to think where next to go as the exhibitions just lead you. The exhibitions and artefacts are very well preserved. I think would be very very fun for kids too.

if you work in the museum domain you won”t be impressed, the aquatic world is poorly made and painted, but the rest of the exhibition is nice.

There is no need for any identity to be shown for entry, but it is wise as a tourist to carry your passport or ID with you. I don't carry one myself as an expat, but better to be safe than sorry if a visitor.
