Today, Queen Máxima opened the new museum Micropia, in Artis Zoo in Amsterdam. The museum is located on a new square, Artisplein, given to the city by Artis Zoo.
Micropia is about the invisible life on and in your bodies: microbes, bacteria, viruses etc. Micropia makes this life visible for the visitor.
The museum is located on Artisplein, a new, beautiful and quiet square in Amsterdam. The square is on the grounds of Artis Zoo, and is freely accessible from 9am to 11pm, every day of the year.
The square is an open space, with a view on some of the Zoo animals (such as the flamingos). There are tables and chairs, and you can have something to eat or drink. The new restaurant De Plantage is also accessible from the square.
Artisplein is accessible from the main zoo entrance or from Plantage Middenlaan.
The Micropia museum can be visited separately from the zoo (but discount combination tickets are available for the Zoo + Micropia).
See the Micropia website for more info.
