The Natural History Museum is one of the oldest museums in Romania, being founded in 1834 by the prince Alexandru Ghica.
In 1908 the museum was moved in a new building located on the Kiseleff Avenue. The new location was inaugurated on May 24th 1908 in the presence of the Romanian king, Carol I. The Natural History Museum was organized on 4 different themes: the Sahara desert, the African savanna, the American prairie and the tundra.
A visit to the museum means not just a fascinated journey in time, from the birth of the Universe until now, but also a journey in space, crossing the continents, from jungles to deserts, from mountain lakes to the deepens of the oceans.
At present the museum is closed to the public for major renovations and modifications. It is set to be open again in 2011.
