If you get to Vatra Dornei and have 20-30 minutes for a walk, you need to visit this location. Chances are that you will see squirrels and, if you have nuts, they will come and take it from your hands directly. My 4 years daughter loved them, of course...

The instructor (Adi) was very patient and friendly with a little 3 year kid. We took him just for one hour, so I cannot say too much about the school, but at least this short experience was pleasant.

Muzeul de Etnografie

Reviewed By Ionut A

We walked in without planning to do so and we did not regret it. The museum is not a large one and the visiting tax is low but it has his sights and bonuses. The actors are 2 beautifull cats that live with the madame that offers the tour. And this is the great bit as we have never seen a person talking about that county's history with such love, emotion and knowledge! Definitely a person who loves her job and leaves you with such a memory that you must review the place!

Muzeul de Stiintele Naturii si Cinegetica

Reviewed By EaGiW - Braila, Romania

My wife and I live in Romania and really enjoy visiting museums throughout the country. We were excited to visit a wildlife and natural museum. This museum was put together in the communist era time. There are many different birds, mammals, horns, fish, and even butterfly's. You cannot take pictures and you cannot buy a ticket to take pictures. The young lady who followed us through the 2 stories of exhibits was very nice. There is a collection of goat horns from the animals Ceausescu killed but the sad part is the condition of the taxidermy. It only costs 3 lei per person and takes a short hour to visit both floors.
