The Museum has an spectacular dinosaur room, room itself and its content and a great evolution exhibit, really worth it. shame some parts of the museum, like the shop, are stuck in the 50's and badly in need of an update !

I am spoilt by having been to major natural science museums so maybe this is a little unfair but the whole experience and layout and information was not particularly good

Really enjoyed our trip round here, we had quite a queue to get our tickets for admission though. Cafe was highly priced. Excellent exhibits and would be good for families of all ages.

The museum of natural sciences currently has a wonderful exposition of dinosaurs and in temporary part exposition of poisonous reptiles and bugs. Parking on the street is possible, yet very hard to find. Museum has a few free parking spots as well. If you bring your own food you can eat it at a dedicated area or go to cafeteria.... More

Everything is interactive, there are 17 areas, dinosaurs, evolution, insects etc. Everyone who visits Brussels should visit here. Make a day of it. Get the Metro to Maelbeek on... More

Went here on a rainy sunday and my tip would be to avoid it on rainy sundays. Very busy. Good and informative exhibitions. 7 euros for an adult.

It is a great museum from adults and kids alike for a very reasonable price. The dinosaur collection is simply stunning, but there are also interesting exhibits on evolution, bugs, the human body. There is also a temporary collection around a theme (the latest one was poison), which are always interesting and well put together. The rooms have enough interactive... More
