The National Museum of Natural History "Grigore Antipa" in Bucharest announces its reopening for the public on Saturday, September 17, after more than two years of restoration and modernization of the permanent exhibition.
The museum was closed in February 2009, in order to undergo a comprehensive modernization project, and the institution is now ready to receive visitors "wearing new clothes, with a modern permanent exhibition, more interactive, and full of surprises and color."

There is also with a cafeteria in the building, where visitors could have snacks and soft drinks, as well as a multimedia room, two rooms for activities with children and a souvenir shop.
