Discover an invisible world at Micropia Amsterdam

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

ARTIS-Micropia shows the most powerful, most succesful and the same time smallest life on earth: microbes. It is the only museum in the world where the invisible world of micro-organisms is made visible. A unique experience in the middle of Amsterdam!

What are microbes? You can’t see them, but they’re here. And you’ve got more than a hundred thousand billion of them. They are everywhere, and they are very important. You can have a close look at them and learn all about it in Micropia Amsterdam. They’re with you when you eat, when you breathe, when you kiss. They shape your world: what you smell, and what you taste whether you get sick, or get better. Microbes: the smallest and most powerful organisms on our planet. When you look from really close, a new world is revealed to you. More beautiful and spectacular than you could have ever imagined. After a visit to this interactive museum you will never look the same at yourself and the world again.
