  • This museum surprised us, by its modernity and state of conservation of its dissected animals, the entrance is economical 20 lei, about 4.25 euros a ticket and it is not true that they charge for taking photos, at least with the mobile you can, it can not be if you enter with camera, they charge you 10 lei more, it is very large of three plants and a lot to see, the rare thing is that there are no longer any groups of environments who want to close it because they have dead and dissected animals, highly recommended to visit with children, it is culture, this of having extinct animals and those who want to close it and now they are not, formerly fashionable, hunt, dissect and put in some hall of the house of some bourgeois, and now collect them here, so that everyone can contemplate them, it is very well, you see as they were before, much to do with a couple of hours is enough.
