BEYOND THE HUMAN EYE

This area at the entrance to the exhibition uses interactive modules to explain the concepts of magnification, scale, lenses, etc. We can only come close to these creatures by using optics that helps us overcome scale. By manipulating the lenses and the objects we will discover how lenses increase the size of objects and also how microscopes work. A collection of optical instruments will give us a good idea of how they have evolved over time, from the first magnifying glasses to today’s digital microscopes. Next, we begin our tour of an unknown world revealed to us thanks to the use of optical instruments, as we set off on a journey through MICROSCOPIC UNIVERSES.
