Who knew that full dinosaur fossils have been uncovered in Belgium and are on display in Brussels? Visit this museum, and you'll know. Most of the dinosaurs on display are artificial, except for the giant skeletons encased in thick glass that dominate the centre of...More

I went on my own and only a few hours, the dinosaur section was good, and the human evolution was really nice to see, but there were lots of kids because there are many attractions for them and interactive learning games.

We visited this museum primarily because of dinosaurs and we were impressed with everything. We recommend it for adults also.

All the exhibits were brilliant, all of the information is in four languages including English. Very easy to get to from the train station.

I really enjoyed the human evolution and human development sections. Absolutely fantastic! The dinosaurs were pretty cool too. The rock section was a bit run down and boring I hate to say. Overall though, a definite must see!

Museum was excellent , very informative with plenty to learn and look at in a range of displays. However, more than half of the electronic displays were not working which was very disappointing. Cafe was overpriced and pretty rubbish but that's to be expected really.

Er is ook een Villo station vlak voor de deur, wat het museum nog veel gemakkelijker bereikbaar maakt.
