You could hardly pick a more suitable and fun place for a rainy, windy day than this incredible museum. And collecting stamps, yay! What a cool idea! The fun starts right at the entrance where a fantastic lady will explain how to enjoy the museum...More

It is a very interesting museum and it’s concept it’s quite intrigued but in my opinion is more attractive for children. For an adult it takes an hour to visit it and you have to be very patient because there are many children in all...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

Really, really impressed by the museums in Amsterdam. Micropia is a must for anyone with a scientific interest. Biology is not my thing but this was totally brilliant.

Do something different in Amsterdam. I hear that the science museum if fun, but Micropia is something different - maybe more interesting for slightly older kids. I'm not sure an under-8 would really get it. You can get a full body scan of all the...More

Not too big museum. Lockers for clothes are available. You can see al the types of germs and microbes that are everywhere, on us and on our stuff. Can be really intimidating.

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
