Red Light Pet Shop @ Schatjes Gallerij
Waag Society opened the world's first pop-up microbial pet shop in the heart of Amsterdam's Red Light District in the summer of 2016. After hosting two successful events in 2015—at the Dutch Design Week and the Museum Night Amsterdam—we decided to open our biobank to the public for three whole weeks at the Schatjes Gallery!

In the Red Light Pet Shop, our curated collection of bacteria, fungi, and algae were available for purchase. Caring for these creatures is fun, educational, and highly rewarding! So come pick up some of our cutest micro-pets and wake up each morning to the sight of a happy colony. And remember: if you take good care of your pets, one day they may just take care of you.
