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!
Snugged up next to Artis Zoo, in the heart of the city, is Micropia. Its a separate ticket, or combo, or free with a museumkaart. For kids and adults fascinated and revolted by the bacteria and viruses and slime molds and plenty of talk of...More
My hub and I bought tix for Micropia and zoo combined and spent the whole day exploring most parts of it. Took home quite a few stamps of bacteria :D
There was so much more to explore but due to short on time, couldn't do...More
The worlds only microbe museum. So much fun for kids and adults. Lots of gooey gross stuff to see on the molecular level. Really interesting displays and kiosks.
Located just within the Zoo it's a must see and part of the I Amsterdam city pass...More
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
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
oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
