Discover Amsterdam

Microbes, you can’t see them, but they’re here. They are on you. In you. And you’ve got more than a hundred thousand billion of them. Micropia is the only museum where you can get so up close and personal with the microbes.

Microbes are invisible, you cant see them but they are all around us. And all of them together weigh more than all of humanity combined. At Micropia we learn about the countless microscopic lifeforms that we share our existence with. So they are everywhere, but you will never see them in your day to day life. By entering the museum you will learn more about these lifeforms. Micropia is the world’s first and so far only microbe museum located within the Artis Royal Zoo. This one-of-a-kind attraction will give you a unique glimpse into the microscopic world and provides a fun interactive journey into the realm of the unseen.
