This museum has been renovated and upgraded with the latest technology in September 2011. It is very instructive for children and young people but also for adults. Most notably the exhibit I found Dinosaur skeleton from the ground floor. Very interesting is the collection of minerals containing single pieces. The Museum also hosts temporary exhibitions sometimes great succeed.

This museum is definitely a must go in Bucharest if you have small children. A lot of animals, mostly taxidermed, will make an afternoon or morning worthwhile in here.
