The national history museum (Muzeul Național de Istorie Naturală) of București was already founded in 1834. In 1933 it was named after its director Grigore Antipa by king Carol II. It is a mix of ancient coins, stones, fossils, minerals and artworks connected to natural history of Romania.
The museum hosts a nice collection of dioramas showing animals in their natural habitat. It is good museum located close to Piața Victoriei. Don’t confuse it with the national museum for geology which is located in a spectacular building close-by. It breathes the spirit of the 1970s and is rather old-fashioned. The dino park in front of the building can’t correct this.
