From humble beginnings as a Cabinet of Natural History back in the 1750s, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences and its museum stand today as a reference in biodiversity and natural science.  Its palaeontology section in particular is famous on an international scale, showcasing a wide selection of skeletons and reconstitutions of dinosaurs in a 3,000-square-metre gallery, the largest one in Europe. Meet the famous Iguanodons of Bernissart, a group of fossilised skeletons found at 322 metres deep, shiver in front of the majestic t-rex and hear the roar of a virtual parasaurolophus!
