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 also has a fine collection of 50,000 stones and 30,000 minerals, but many of its halls, including the shell, whale, mammal, and insects galleries, are off-limits currently as the museum gets an ongoing overhaul. However, the impressive new Gallery of Humankind is worth the trip alone, and charts the evolution of the human race to the present day.
