Whoever put this place together did an outstanding job. You have to be so creative to communicate the fascinating world of microscopic organisms, and right from the elevator slowly rising towards brightly lit images of microbes, it was clear they had gone for it in...More

I am a biologist by education. For a children's museum to be this thorough and still be factual and correct all through out without entirely dumbing down the information is not an easy feat. The staff is lovely and helpful, with some demonstrations through out...More

Whole ARTIS was impressive but this place was really something new for us - usually they don't include microorganisms in zoos :-) We were acting like little kids - collecting stamps with bacteria and impatiently waiting for our turn to see another type of microorganisms...More

Quick heads up, you have to pay by card here. So make sure you book online before going if your card charges you per transaction when abroad. But the whole place is amazing. You learn so much in such a fun way. I recommend it...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
