Her Majesty Queen Máxima of The Netherlands has opened Micropia in Amsterdam on the 30th of September 2014. Micropia is a unique museum that is set to inspire the general public, encouraging their interest in microorganisms and microbiology.

The visual and the experiential are central, while the focus is firmly on the mostly positive relationship between microbes and humans. Bruns developed together with design studio Kossmanndejong and ART + COM studios world’s first museum of microorganisms.

Micropia aims at becoming also an international platform for microbiology that brings diverse interest groups together in order to bridge the gap between science and the general public. The uniqueness of Micropia lies in its mix of living and virtual microbes. Most exhibits show living microorganisms as well as having a media extension. Film, images and text provide insight into microbe appearance and behaviour, and the diversity of the microorganism relationship with humans.
