Fodor's Review

The highlights of the Natural Sciences Museum are the skeletons of 14 iguanodons found in 1878 in the coal mines of Bernissart—these are believed to be about 120 million years old. It has a fine collection of 50,000 stones and 30,000 minerals, and displays on biodiversity, insects, and tropical shells. A brand new Gallery of Humankind, which opened in mid-2015, charts the evolution of the human race to the present day. A new ocean-themed ecology gallery is due to open in 2017.
