Muséum des Sciences naturelles de Bruxelles


Discover nature at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels, where you can explore human nature, our evolution and biology, in the brand new Gallery of Humankind: from Sahelanthropus to Homo sapiens; from embryo to adult. But that’s not all! In the rest of the Museum you’ll find the largest Dinosaur Gallery in Europe, you'll be able to study the 1000+ specimens in the Gallery of Evolution, to dive with gigantic sea lizards from the Cretateuous period in the Mosasaur Room, to embark on an urban safari in BiodiverCITY and to discover 250 years of the history of Natural Sciences through 14 iconic specimens. With rooms dedicated to subjects as diverse as minerals, insects (with the Vivarium where you can observe amongst others live tarantulas and stick insects) and shells, there’s always something to discover in the permanent collections. Visit the website for more information about the temporary exhibitions
