We booked as a free option with our iamsterdam cards. We would not have paid full price as the venue itself is small however it was a brilliant place to see lots and learn. We really enjoyed it and hope to see it expanded as...More

If your going to the Amsterdam Royal Zoo - DO NOT MISS this place. You can buy a bundle ticket that includes the Zoo and the Micropia for a pretty good discount. I recommend you do it. You may think learning about micro organisms is...More

I found it very educational, for kids and adults too! Everything very interesting, yet I have a museum card, so it was free for me. I know that the entry fee is a bit high. If you have kids, strongly recommended. I'm 35 and I've...More

For the price, we were expecting more exhibits. The 30 or so that were on display for interesting but sort of repetitive. It would be an educational experience if you had time but I wouldn't add it as a must see of Amsterdam.

Very interesting and well laid out. Bit frustrating if lots of visitors there as you must queue for each exhibit. I would recommend it thought - something different.

I went in after visiting the botanical garden since it was nearby. It was so different and interesting. There were fun interactive parts (kissing booth was funny and gross seeing how much bacteria). I arrived about 2:30 so caught the 4pm talk on poop. Totally...More

This is a special museum which is very interactive and treats a fascinating science subject. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time, its small in size, but its smack-full of information and interactive exhibits. At least 2h.

1 hour should be enough. But if you have the time there is enough there to keep you entertained for at least 2 :)
