Meet your Microbes

They’re on your tongue, under your armpits, in your guts and on your skin. In fact, any place you can think of there are microbes living on, under, or in between there. In their unimaginably large numbers, these micro-organisms determine our lives – even though we never see them. Micropia, the world’s first museum of micro-organisms (next to Artis Royal Zoo) in Amsterdam, reveals the invisible world of microbes.
