This was a really cool museum, there were loads of clever and varied interactive exhibits. It was really interesting to learn about and see lots of microbes. It seemed to be really well maintained, all of the displays were in working order and looking great.

This is a tiny museum, only two relatively small floors of exhibits, but well-presented and interesting. There are live microbes that can be viewed using microscopes, interactive illustrations of the human microbiome, and illustrations of how these bugs get transmitted. There's a tour of poop...More

Saw this on Ch4 Travel program. Very good interactive displays and a brief talk on poo! Makes you realise just how easily germs can spread.
