The Dolphinarium in Constanţa began its activity on June 1, 1972, being the first museum form of this kind in our country and the first one in the S-E of Europe at that time. The exhibition presents the world of the shell fish living in diverse seas. The shows are organized in the amphitheatre with a pool, with dolphins from the Phocaena relicta species and Delphinus delphis ponticus species, with seals from the South Atlantic.
Aquarium - Constanţa, the first section of the Natural Sciences Museum Complex, located on the seafront promenade Casino, in its immediate vicinity, is the first public aquarium in Romania and was inaugurated on the May 1, 1958.
The building that houses it was build at the beginning of the XX century, needed complete rearrangement, because it had a different destination before 1950.
The Aquarium in Constanta remained the biggest institution of its kind in the country, even after other natural science museums have established departments with the same profile.
Starting with the year 1982, within The Natural Sciences Museum Complex in Constanţa, the Exotic and landscape birds Exhibition placed by the Micro-Delta, entered into a touristic circuit.
On a 100 sqm covered surface, in large bird houses, with adequate compartments for food, nesting, flying and rest, one can admire the representatives of different bird species from Asia, Africa, Australia, New Guinea and South America. Among the terrestrial invertebrates birds represent the many species group, summing up ¾ from their total.
Within the The Natural Sciences Museum Complex in Constanţa, starting with the year 1985 a Micro-reservation entered the public circuit, spreading on a 6 ha surface out of which 2 ha represent luster water with a swamp vegetation. This objective was created with a view to offer the visitors a more complex image on the Dobrogea’s nature.
The patrimony of this objective has the aquatic avifauna (pelicans, swans, ducks and wild geese), the terrestrial avifauna (peacocks, pheasants) and mammals (mouflons, fallow deer, harts), that can be found in the Danube Delta’s Biosphere Reservation and the Negureni Reservation. Most part of these exemplars are natural monuments and rare species with a scarce representation in the natural biotopes.
Like a window permanently open to the sky, the Planetarium in Constanţa resembles a “beacon” on the Black Sea coast. The first public objective of this type in the country was set up in the year when man could “touch” the moon by the foot for the first time (1969), the Planetarium reveal today the sky-mysteries so hard to see. A world beyond us, made up of stars, planets, galaxies and other things are disclosed to you, but you are assisted to learn how to travel among them using the constellations, the “Sky” that needed no renovation in the last 2000 years contributing to the realization of this picture.
