You can’t see them, but they’re here. And you’ve got more than a hundred thousand billion of them. They’re with you when you eat, when you breathe, when you kiss. They shape your world: what you smell, and what you taste; whether you get sick, or get better. Microbes: the smallest and most powerful organisms on our planet.
Find out more about this invisible world through fascinating exhibitions in Micropia. Get your body scanned to meet your own microbes. Learn interesting facts about microorganisms and their impact on our health. When you look from really close, a new world is revealed to you. More beautiful and spectacular than you could ever have imagined.
