Description

Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History was opened to public in 1908, an event attended by major names such as Romanian King Carol I, Prince Ferdinand and Princess Maria.

One of the 16 rooms opened in the museum included 4 bio-geographical dioramas (Sahara desert, African savanna, U.S prairie and tundra.), among the first made in the world, which were taken as a model for many other natural history museums in the country and abroad.

Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History is the largest and oldest museum of the Danube countries and its collection comprises over 300,000 exhibits, from which stands out the richest collection of butterflies from around the world.

The first museum collections belong to the College of St. Sava and dates from 1834, which formed the basis of the museum.
In the museum are found pieces illustrating areas like: ecology, oceanography, zoology, paleontology, taxonomy and morphology.

Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History is one of the most fascinating places worth visiting in Bucharest. A ticket at the museum sends the visitor into a beautiful journey through time, starting with the birth of the universe and ending with the present times, journey that shows our planet formation, the birth and development of living creatures.

Also, the collection of Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History introduces viewers in an unusual journey into space, making around the world, from one continent to another, passing through jungles and deserts, through caves and polar lands, from mountain lakes until ocean depths.

The butterflies collection, the largest in Europe, is maintained and preserved in special deposits, with museographs and specialized personnel inside the National Museum of Natural History Grigore Antipa.

Because of the sensitivity of certain parts of this collection, only a small part of it is exposed to the public, to avoid possible deterioration of the fragile exhibits.
