NETHERLANDS ~ Microbia Museum ~

...  *Curious* looking postcard of an interesting museum in Holland... the world's first museum of microbes... it is part of the ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo... to me a museum of microbes sounds almost a bit weird...  but Micropia has found a unique way to show the world of the smallest life form, micro-organismes... focusing on bugs, bacteria, germs and tiny life.... it has taken over 12 years for the idea but this museum  really opens your eyes to the unseen world... Thanks a lot  Dustin!! 【ツ】(more famous and known Dutch museum next😉)



Micropia is a museum in Amsterdam that opened in 2014 based on the idea of distributing information about microbes, which are often associated with illness and disease despite their essential function in the daily functioning of human life. It consists of both living microbes as well as virtual representations of microbes.

The Micropia museum is not just limited to micro-organisms such as bacteria. Visitors can also see living ants and large-scale graphic images of their behaviour or get an idea of how fast decay sets in by watching a fast-forward series of pictures of a kiwi fruit ageing.
