We got there Sunday afternoon and Micropia was well visited. The staff was very friendly and all in all I think it's worth a visit! You will need about 1 - 1 1/2 hours for all and we also joined a short presentation about antibiotics....More

Some place different to spend a hour or two - it is not the largest attraction. It is catered more towards children but adults will get some thing out of it to. Effectively there are different stations each set up with a microscope. You move...More

Fascinating museum next to the zoo. Has many interactive exhibits. As you explore the exhibits, (which contain live microbes!), you can stamp a card, and then at the end you can insert your card into a device that projects information and images of all the...More

Such a fantastic museum! It's a great display of high tech interactive exhibits. The microbes are fascinating! We learnt a lot. All the staff we met were lovely too. Would go again and would recommend!

Fabulous exhibit and way to spend a couple of hours in Amsterdam. The beauty in these micro-organisms is amazing and breathtaking. Went at 6pm Saturday evening and wasn't crowded so had a good look and read of everything.

Although I no longer work in the field, I have a background in microbiology, so I was very excited to be able to visit Micropia. I was not disappointed. I had been a bit worried that my non-scientist husband would be bored, but the exhibitions...More

Mold, mildew, icky sticky stuff and science. If any of these appeal to you, this is your museum. Next to the Artis Zoo, takes about 1 hour. Learn about germs, bacteria, viruses with a working research lab. I bring science minded friends, they seem to...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

1 hour should be enough. But if you have the time there is enough there to keep you entertained for at least 2 :)
