The Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels is a world of discoveries for all the family!
The rooms of the museum hide some real treasures: genuine iguanodon skeletons found in Belgium, Ishango bone tools, mammoths from Lier, Tasmanian wolves, moonstones, meteorites...to name just a few!
With more than 17,000 specimens, a modern and dynamic layout and many interactive games and activities, the Museum is more than just a museum, its a real experience to be lived.
And that's not all, the museum also hosts the largest Dinosaur gallery in Europe.
