Beautiful museum, must visit! It is pretty huge though, so you might need more hours to fully experience and analyze every room. But it is totally worth it, really cool!

Great place to see the result of hundreds of years of Romanian research in biology, anthropology and ecology. Temporary exhibitions give it an even more attractive touch. Allow an hour if not longer to cover all areas as it worth doing it. Even if this...More

The Grigore Antipa Museum is a worthwhile visit, if you are a fan of such institutions. It cannot compete with counterparts in other European capitals (Berlin, Vienna and Moscow come to mind here) for the breadth of the collection displayed, but it does a good...More

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.
