Full description
At Micropia you’ll experience the smallest and most successful of life forms. Every human being carries approximately 1.5 kilograms of microbes, as you’ll learn with you skip-the-line admission ticket. Microbes are everywhere, and they shape your world. You can experience this straight away through specially designed 3D viewers that make it possible for you to see how living microbes move around, eat, and reproduce. You can navigate through the habitat of extremophiles, which are microorganisms that are able to survive the most extreme circumstances. And with a body scan, you come face-to-face with your very own microorganisms. After a visit to Micropia, you’ll probably never see yourself, or the world, in the same way again.

Price with 16€ per person is okay, but a little bit too much for the museum. The pictures and illustrations are however, very good and it's very interesting to read the information. Still it's really detailed and many creatures are being discriped, which is why this is only for people who are really interested in microbiology. Great visit!

Great fun and very informative

Helpful staff explained in perfect English what to expect from Micropia. Free lockers to leave your bags & coats so you can participate in all the activities. Lots of information displayed & scientists on hand to answer any questions. Enjoyed the digital scanner which detects the many microbes present both on & in the body. Be prepared for some alarming results! Good fun for all ages and great value for money. Hoping a similar exhibition will open in UK soon.

Extraordinary interactive experience

I love the whole concept, very exceptional. The interaction with science is extraordinary. There were machines everywhere for every microb to see them closely. The screens that tells the stories were very engaging and straightforward. I did the whole tour around for 2hrs and I was able to go over every station and read everything. Very brilliant museum I wish they do an extension to it or expand abroad
