Make a donation

The Historical Microscopy Foundation is officially registered by the Dutch Government. It is managed by a three-headed board. The objective of the foundation is to collect historical microscopes and other scientific instruments. The collection can be visited by appointment. Entrance is free.

The foundation is financially dependent on subsidies, gifts, and legacies. Donations are vital in enabling the foundation to fulfil its objective and to guarantee its continuity. Also microscopes and other scientific instruments that fit in the scope of the collection are welcome.

For personal contact with one of the board members, please leave a message (info@stichtinghistorischemicroscopie.nl) and you will be contacted as soon as possible.

The foundation tries to collect as much as possible valuable knowledge. We invite the reader to help us completing and correcting our website.
