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.

As I awaited my luggage, I quickly connected to the WiFi and visited their website. “That’s where I’m going to spend my day in Amsterdam” I declared.
