The microscope opens the door to the world of the tiny: the word is made up of the Greek mikrós (small) and skopeín (to look at sth). What we cannot see with our eyes becomes visible through a microscope – which is why microscopes and their related tools are essential for research today. Thanks to them, we now know how bacteria, blood cells and other tiny creatures and objects are structured. The Microscopy Theatre introduces you to various microscope technologies. Here you can experience microscopy live!
