What to know before you visit

Microscarium

Venture into a world that few people know even exists…if you dare. Watch as voracious worms stalk their prey. There, behind that huge plant, is that an enormous shrimp? Did you see two wheels on the head of that one that just zipped by? But wait, isn’t this supposed to be a trip through a microscopic world?

It is, but with the advanced technology of a high quality, phase contrast microscope, it’s like you’re right there swimming with these aquatic creatures. Projected onto the wall for everyone to view, this tiny world appears as a dense jungle full of huge, exotic creatures. But it’s really just the life to be found in a drop of pond water.

You’ll be amazed at the variety and complexity of life found in the microscopic world. And, ultimately you’ll discover that there really is no such thing as a simple life form!
