    A visit to Micropia - a new museum of the invisible in Amsterdam

    If I were to ask you where in the world you would expect to find a museum dedicated to microorganisms, you would probably guess Holland since that is the country of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. He is known to most every school student as the Dutch lens grinder who discovered what he called animalcules, and is considered the ‘father of microbiology’ in introductory biology texts. Arriving at Schiphol airport, I made my way to the baggage hall and there on the wall was a massive advertising poster beckoning me to visit the new museum showing the invisible, Micropia.
