  • This was so much fun and very informative overall. A zoo for microbes! Love the concept, and the execution is thoughtful and well done. Lots of hands-on learning here. Both Dutch and English are included in all parts of the exhibits.
  • Probably the most remarkable museum you will encounter in a long time. Prepare to discover how many bacteria you are carrying around, and who are keeping you healthy. Watch stuff decay (including a baby giraf from the next-door zoo that died unexpectedly. Building itself looks great. Lovely staircase leading to the second floor. I only think the price is a bit steep. We have a museumjaarkaart, so it was "free", but I don't think I would normally spent €14 on a ticket for a small exhibition like this. (half this price when combined with the Artis zoo)
  • I wish biology class was this fun when I went to school. Interactive, colourful, visual and technological. Very informative and actual. Fun, fun, fun. Combine it with a day at the zoo and you are all set.
  • Very cool museum, quite small but certainly lots to see. The talk at the beginning is given in both Dutch and English which is nice, as are all the signs and descriptions.
  • Fascinating collection for people of all ages and interests. Kept both myself (microbiologist!) and my boyfriend (finance/IT) entertained for a good couple of hours. Brilliant way of sharing what lies under the microscope that so few people get to experience otherwise. Well worth a visit!
