    Museum of Natural Sciences

    A natural must-see for children and adults. Meet the famous Bernissart Iguanodons in the largest Dinosaur Gallery in Europe. Learn about the human body and how it evolved in the Gallery of Humankind and go back in time in the Gallery of Evolution. You can also find out about urban species in BiodiverCITY, discover specimens which illustrate the Museum’s history in the 250 years of Natural Sciences hall. Admire the magnificent crystals in the Mineral Hall, and experience something new every year by visiting the temporary exhibitions or by taking part in one of the educational service’s interactive activities.

    The Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences is much more than its popular museum. It is also a research institute and it manages world-class natural sciences collections.

    Whether you're feeling a bit hungry or thirsty, or if you could eat a dinosaur, head to the Dino Café! Here you will find a wide range of food to eat in or take away. Our menu is a hit with children and includes sandwiches, salads, soups, hot meals and hot dogs.
