Summer in Micropia

Micropia is excitied. Excited for the summer. From Friday, July 9 through Sunday, September 5, the museum is organizing various activities for the entire family.

Listen to the Lab technician: Strong Together 

After more than a year and a half, we finally get to be together again. Without each other, there is very little fun to be had. That's true of all life, and certainly true of microbes. Without cooperating microbes, animals, plants or humans could not exist.  In fact, your own microbes even influence who you fall in love with!  If you want to know more about these invisible friends, listen to the 'Laboratory tells' in ARTIS-Micropia. Every day at 1pm and 4pm in front of the Micropia laboratory. 

Workshop: make your own microbe

Microbes have the most extreme shapes and colors. A tail, eight legs, full of hair or completely smooth. You name it. On Wednesday afternoon from 12.30 to 14.30 you can build your own microbe with all kinds of (lab) materials during this drop-in workshop. Fun for kids, but secretly also for adults.
