Micropia

The groundbreaking microbe museum

Micropia is the world's first microbe museum, and by making these invisible creatures visible, it shows the interconnectedness of all things, and gives some surprising insights into the way the world works.

To truly understand the natural world, you've got to understand the smallest and most successful organisms: microbes. Tiny, powerful and invisible to the human eye, microbes are absolutely fascinating.

Did you know that two-thirds of the total number of species on earth are invisible to the naked eye? These creatures also live in some surprising places: on your tongue, under your arms, and on your skin.

In fact, microbes can be found literally everywhere. And if that sounds gross, you definitely need to visit Micropia and get a new perspective on these creatures. Without micro-organisms such as fungi, yeasts, (micro)algae, bacteria, archaea, viruses and micro-creatures, life on this planet wouldn't be possible.

Micropia shows all the different ways that our lives, and the planet, interacts with and is influenced by these unseen creatures.

Immerse yourself in this innovative museum and revel in the world of bacteria and germs. Learn how microbiology can offer solutions to global problems, including water purification and cures to infectious diseases. Be amazed by how Microbes produce energy, food and bio-plastics and its potential to be introduced to new uses.
