From 13th May to 10th June, ARTIS-Micropia will be temporarily closed.

To prepare ARTIS-Micropia for the future, the museum will temporarily close its doors from May 13th to June 10th.

This is aimed at enhancing and optimizing the visitor experience.

The 'Lab taks' at the ARTIS Groote Museum

From Mondays to Fridays between May 13th and June 7th, ARTIS-Micropia lab techs will discuss the future of food and the role of microorganisms in it. Visitors to the ARTIS-Groote Museum can join in at 2:00 pm in the East Hall to learn more about this topic.

No microbes in real life

So, the invisible world won't be available to view in person for a while, but you can find plenty of microbe stories and microscopic images online. Stay updated on the latest developments and background stories by following ARTIS-Micropia on Facebook , TikTok , and Instagram .
