When I came to Amsterdam I knew nothing of this hidden treasure chest of knowledge. Micropia is a museum of the world beneath our visible spectrum, which turns scale on its head and allows you to see life under the microscope. Organisms invisible to the naked eye are seen up close and their life cycles and impact on our lives, positive and negative, explained in clear layman's terms both by the excellent multi-lingual signposting and by the knowledgeable researchers who work within the museum who come out to give public talks on how they conduct their work several times a day. I found the museum inspiring and although on this occasion I was without my daughter I would strongly recommend it as a place to go with children - they give you a card upon entry which you can stamp as you go around the museum with cute little microbe designs. Hands down my favourite experience in Amsterdam. Strong words.

It's the only museum in the world about microorganisms! There's microscopes to see different types of organisms that we cannot see with our eyes. They also had some interactive games and a stamp pad to keep track of all the microbes. If you're passionate about Microbiology, you will enjoy it. It is also good to get children interested in Microbiology. We had it free with the iAmsterdam card. However, for the €14 price tag, I cannot recommend it if you're not so keen about Microbiology.

An excellent if compact museum devoted to microbiology. The visitors I saw were mostly families with small children, but much of the exhibit would be best appreciated by adults. The highlight are the many microscopes scattered throughout the museum, allowing for the observation of live samples. These samples are meaningfully arranged: some are part of one food chain (algae, water flea, mosquito larvae), others parts of a theme (water bears in the extremophile section). The microscopes are often coupled with excellent stereographic photographs of the same subject, as well as displays containing fairly extensive further information. Perhaps the most striking exhibit is the umbrella ant colony. These leaf-cutter ants cultivate a fungus in their nests which converts leaves into nutrients. At the museum, four colonies in transparent containers are connected to a central "garden" containing some fruit and a few leafy potted plants. The colony containers are along the edge of the exhibit; the "garden" is in the center, separated from the visitors only by a moat of swirling water. The ants can move between the colonies and the "garden" via underwater passages, but are prevented by the moat from escaping into the rest of the museum. In footprint the museum of tiny, spanning only two large rooms on two floors, with most of the interesting exhibits on the second. But it's one of the better science museums I've visited, and can easily take a couple hours to properly digest.

I enjoy Micropia so much! Perhaps some people considered about the price first, just like what me and my boyfriend did. But I did not regret anything! The receptionist is very helpful, the lockers room is very neat, and the museum itself is fascinating! Details: I love the copy-writing. The explanation is easy to be understood. I love the ambiance starting from taking the lift to upper floor. There is also a presentation session with the scientists about the world of microbes. Ah, one thing. I visited this place on week days in non-peak hours so it is comfortable. I do not know if you're still able to enjoy the museum if it's crowded.

So interactive and interesting!! From the very beginning! Fantastic for both children and adults alike, very informative and it's great being able to see everything ( that are usually hidden). Highly recommend a visit to this museum!! ( we visited after a heavy day with Anne Frank house, Jewish museum etc, and visiting this museum definitely lightened the day!)

I’m a have two degrees in molecular biology and microbiology and I found this place fascinating. There’s something for everyone to learn here. And even as 29-year old child, I loved the idea of the organism ‘passports’! How fun! Any kid would have a blast here, regardless of their interest in science.

Really interesting exhibits and insights into the microbial world. Staff here were the real stars, providing us with loads of details and answers about the specimens they had. The exhibits are all interactive for kids and big kids alike. Can highly recommend a visit for families and those interested in biology/being incredibly clean!

Really interesting place with lots to see. It's very reasonably priced and offer discounts for students. There was a talk when we were there which was informative and interesting. It's a much quiter place than the other attractions in Amsterdam so is a nice break. Great for all ages!

I love the concept of the museum. It's small enough to keep you entertained, so you will enjoy the beauty of the microbial life. Kudos to the supporting software design, which accompany every item in exposition

Microorganisms are beautiful. This place is one of only a few microbiology museums in the world. The displays are hands on and highly interactive. Well worth the admission, and a great way to teach kids (both big and little) about the trillions of organisms that make up an essential part of the human body. Staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about microbiology.

Micropia did a great job making microbes more interesting for the general public. It's not a very big museum but it has 2 floors and a lot of interactive ways of learning. They also show a lot of art made from microbes which I found very fascinating! It's next to the Artis Zoo so a combination with that is a good way to fill a whole day.

Well located and easy to find. You can get 1€ discount per ticket buying online. It is small but very interesting! We spend around 5h inside. Plenty of useful and curious information about the world of microbes. I recommended to adults, it's very fun!

Really cool experience. Lots of interesting and interactive displays that will keep you busy for hours. It is small... But you don't need much space display microbes after all! The interactive microscopes and interesting facts coupled with very well presented displays are well worth the price.

Fun little museum about the micro world. Even though it's not very big you can easily spend a lot of time there. All and all it's very well made and the kids running around collecting stamps at different microorganisms looked like they had a lot of fun too. (I might be biased as a biologist but I think it's a great idea) 😊

Amazing experience! Even if you have a degree in biology, there are so many interesting things to see and touch. My absolute favorites are tropical ants and fluorescent fish. It will take at least an hour or two to see everything, free entrance with Museum card.

Such a unique experience. I really enjoyed my time at this museum which had a wide array of exhibits on various microscopic organisms. I also really appreciated that that they had a student discount for me. I would recommend everyone to go here and spend at least an hour.

Extremely well made. In English and Dutch and it'll take you about 90minutes to 2 hours for a quick visit. You see poop and microbes as well as some live lab workers preparing agar plates and talk to expert guides about everything on show. A bug must for every age visitor with a scientific interest!

Turned out to be a highlight of my trip! A fascinating zoo, given that you are technically surrounded by all of its exhibits every day, if only you had a microscope. Lots of great information, like just how germy your everyday items are. The animated explanations of how, for example, reproduction works are actually top notch and really showed the process. Even the one-floor elevator ride is a metaphor for 'looking closer' as you ascend. Very interactive, lots to see, and lots to talk about. It is quite dark inside the zoo, so be careful not to bump in to others.
