Museum of Natural Sciences

The Museum of Natural Sciences features several permanent exhibitions dedicated to dinosaurs and natural history. The museum has Europe’s largest exhibition of dinosaurs with 30 nearly complete skeletons (originals and reproductions). Other permanent exhibits focus on the evolution of animals and humans; feature outstanding shell, minerals and whale collections; and explain biodiversity. Many exhibits have interactive touch screens and audio guides.

There are also workshops designed especially for children, and fascinating temporary exhibitions.

    A lot to do

    Reviewed 19 February 2017

    One of the nicest museum in Belgium. It has a lot to offer and it takes more than a day to go around... even if you manage to see everything, there is no way you really focus and discover everything in one day without overwhelming your children. I would advice you to choose sections you would like to focus on for your visit and keep the rest for next time. Although the prices are good, and you can enjoy a free visit on the first Wednesday of the month if I am correct (same goes for any city museum), they organise very nice exposition and those get expensive very easily. There is a parking but it is small, and it is not easy to park around the museum as it is the city centre... plus, it is quite expensive to park in the streets. If you children are older already, take the bus! This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Quite impressive

    Reviewed 14 November 2016

    It's a very interesting museum. The older a child the more he/she will learn and take advantage of the interactive displays. My 6 y.o. kids really enjoyed the dinosaur gallery with a T-Rex and other species, and they liked a lot the gallery of evolution (which has a lot of hands-on exhibits), the insect hall and various shells. The food in cafeteria wasn't great but good enough to get a warm snack and something to drink. This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    We’re sorry, but parents haven’t shared any tips about this place yet.
