Get Acquainted With the World of Microorganisms

According to the ‘European Museum of the Year Award’ (EMYA), Micropia is the most innovative museum of Europe. The jury called it “a unique, original, and ground-breaking museum that makes the world of microbes more interesting, Micropia takes the concept of a museum to a whole new level”. This is an enormous praise and it is well-deserved.

Micropia is a new museum that you will find next to Artis, the zoo. This museum aims to make the invisible world of micro-organisms visible. Viruses, fungi, and bacteria are enlarged and become a micro zoo. Even though most people hold negative feelings towards bacteria, most of them are good for us. Here you will find out what micro-organisms are, what they do, and why they are important to us. They are the world’s smallest, yet most powerful organisms. Through 3D-viewers, you can see how living microbes move around, eat and reproduce. And with a bodyscan, you meet face-to-face with your own micro-organisms.

Even though this museum enlarges the tiniest part of the world, it opens up an enitrely new one.

Other activities in the neighbourhood are Artis Royal Zoo, and Science Center NEMO.
