An invisible world

An invisible world

Winning the award for most innovative and groundbreaking museum in Europe in 2016, Micropia is a state of the art museum, with fascinating exhibitions that find the perfect balance between learn and play. At the forefront of many medical and scientific breakthroughs. Some of these microbes are pretty impressive, like real-life superheroes. The water bear is not only adorable, but can survive extreme, heat, cold, and can even live in space!

Part of the ARTIS brand, Micropia is also attached to the famous ARTIS Zoo and Planetarium, so you can make it a full day out! However, Micropia’s central location means you can head straight off after visiting the museum and explore Amsterdam’s fantastic sights. For more science, head to the NEMO museum, or, for a breath of fresh air, what about Vondelpark? Or a lovely wander around the streets of Jordaan?
