The Collection of
Marine Micro-organisms

Curator: Wim van Egmond

The ocean bears many secrets. Some of these secrets are unknown, not because they are so difficult to find but rather because they are barely visible. When observed throught a microscope a small sample of marine water will transform into an alien world inhabited by creatures that look like UFOs. Let's try to identify these unidentified floating objects!
