Welcome

The «Walk-Through Cell» is an inflatable model of a human cell magnified 300'000 times. This corresponds roughly to the size of the Earth compared to a hot-air balloon.

The model depicts in a detailed fashion the inner structure and organization of a cell and its components. This exhibition is an invitation to everybody to explore the inner life and complexity of the basic functional unit of all living organisms and to experience how all structures interact with each other.

In comparison to other elements, single components are larger or smaller in proportion due to conditions of manufacturing or didactic reasons.
