It's really good. Worth it. Some things are a bit worn out, especially in the center area where the rocks are. I recommend using the toilets in the exhibits because those in the central area are not so clean.
Lots of animals, lots of dinosaurs, lots of fossils, some really cool rocks, old fossils and good learning experience.
I like that they charge much less to children, making it easier for families.
The staff are great.
The museum is huge and you'd need several visits to see it properly and read everything. If you can get an annual pass,it's cheap and you can come various times and really learn.

First time I went into a museum during my stay. I was not disappointed!
Are usually I’m not museums because of how they put the information on display, and make it look boring.
But this museum made it so fun to learn and so interactive that I was drawn into everything that I see!

The museum is divided into many sections. From biology to minerals and dinosaurs. so you won’t risk to be bored if one thing doesn’t interest you: there’s something for every curious bean!

If this is your first time in Belgium and you are into museums, then this one should definitely be your first.

The museum is amazing. First time of my life i go through all of the museum's stuff. It was really interesting. It has everything about the origin of life on the universe, real carbon dated skeletons, stuffed animals.... The place is suitable for adults and kids. But it really interesting for adults with science curiosity.

What an amazing museum!! So many artifacts in exhibition! All the part were amazing. The dinosaurs, the minerals, animals and fish, the evolutionary processes, the food chain processes and more! There are too many things to see in one day. Recommended 100%

One of the best natural history museums I've been to, and I go to a lot. Most information is provided in 4 languages. It's very interactive with games and activities, as well as touchscreens with information about the exhibits themselves. I particularly liked the information about ethical collecting, and how the museum itself has not always gone about things 100% ethically but now strives to do so and to educate others on the topic. My favourite part was the temporary "Giants" exhibition, which had life size sculptures of some extinct megafauna incorporating their fossilized remains. It had lots of info about each of the featured animals. The museum was pretty empty when I went other than some school groups, and I would definitely recommend going at quieter times if possible so that you can do the activities and games without waiting.

Great museum, so much to see, it would take a full day to do it thoroughly. I really appreciated that everything had an English option to read/listen to. Loads of interactive activities that are really informative. It's super kid friendly if you have them, the kids I saw seemed to be having a blast. Thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon here!

Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels displays a spectacular and breathtaking selection of complete prehistoric animals majestically located in Dinosaur Hall with crown jewels in a form of complete skeletons of Iguanodon found in Belgium. Other halls display natural life from all across the World and human evolution. You can spend days there and always find something new  to gaze upon. This was my first time visiting and I hope I'll be back soon.

My 5, 2, and 1 yr old enjoyed their tour around the museum. They have prehistoric animals and modern animals. Lots of places for kids to learn and run around. There's even a dome theater to watch and learn about dinosaurs. Also free parking when you come early enough.

The world largest hall dedicated to Dinausaurs, this museum is very big and full of specimens: Skeletons, rocks, crystals, meteorites...
Make sure to read about it before you go in order to mentally prepare for the different sections this museum has. Take your time in exploring the different sections, better dedicate between 3 & 4 hours there.
I love their dark interactive experience as well, where you need to play games related to humans and animals progress and evolution in order to unlock your exit.
Some sections are only offered in French & Dutch, probably created when Brussels was not the international city it is today (Rocks & Crystals section), I do recommend they correct that. At some parts, it lacks explanations of the artifacts displayed because you wouldn't know what you are looking at.
I highly recommend this museum, enjoy, take your time checking out the dinosaur big hall, a beautiful perspective of how little & short lived humans are comparing to those giants that lived for millions of years, humbling experience.

Went with my nephew and had a great time. Honestly I enjoyed this more than the one in London. Was large, interactive and overall enjoyable. The only part that wasn’t was when we completed the visit and sat by the “food market” and took a break from all the walking. My nephew has food allergies so we were giving him some food we knew was safe and we were told “no picnic” and a sign pointed to. I get it so we wrapped up and left and gave him food outside. But great exhibits and enjoyable for whole family.

It had been years since my last visit to the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. Therefore, I decided to take another look. I am thrilled that I did because the museum is a place where I could easily spend an entire day without getting bored, and all for just €13. The museum offers a plethora of super interesting information that will keep you engaged for hours on end. The collection of fossils, artifacts, and visual representations is truly remarkable. I found myself wandering from one side of the museum to the other, eager to read and explore everything it had to offer. From dinosaurs to the gallery of humans, the gallery of evolution, the mineral hall, and so much more, every corner held something fascinating.

For me, it was the perfect place to spend a rainy day, and I will definitely return because there is still so much more information to absorb. This is one of those museums that we, as Belgians, can take pride in ;)

My favourite museum! It's where long ago my passion for fossils and dinosaurs started.

Enjoyed the museum with our young children, they liked the dinosaurs, stuffed animals and live insects most. Especially worth it on the free entrance day due to the King's birthday.
It is difficult that the kids want to touch everything, while that's not allowed anywhere and even sets off alarms when they get close.
We could park straight in front of the entrance, to our surprise it was not busy at all..
