The discovery of microbes is often attributed to Antonie von Leeuwenhoek, a notable Dutch scientist who lived and worked during Holland’s Golden Age of science and technology. He brought to light the fact that microorganisms are everywhere, and come in many varied forms, including yeasts, molds, algae, bacteria, and viruses. Undoubtedly the smallest life-forms to exist on our planet, these fascinating creatures often go undetected by the human eye. Enter Micropia, the world’s first and only microbe museum located on the grounds of the Artis Royal Zoo! Filled with dozens of interactive, educational exhibits, Micropia provides engaging fun for all ages and offers plenty of opportunities for learning about the invisible world of microbes. Observe microbes and microorganisms up close through the powerful microscopes, and high-definition cameras and slides housed in Micropia. Admission to Micropia is separate from admission to the Artis Royal Zoo. Choose your preferred ticket package for both or just visit this exciting attraction!
