Discover an invisible world in Amsterdam at Micropia
Next to the beautiful zoo Artis, now there is an attraction that focuses on invisible life forms: microbes. What are those? Well, everyone carries about 1,5 kilos of microbes! They are everywhere, and are very important.
You can see this right away through 3D viewers, especially designed for Micropia. Discover how they live, eat and reproduce.
Get to know ‘extremophiles’ – micro-organisms that are able to survive the most extreme circumstances. And with a bodyscan, you come face to face with your own micro-organisms. After Micropia, you will probably never see yourself, or the world, in the same way again.
