The exhibition is located at the Humanities and Social Sciences reading room of the Zalman Aranne Central Library, Ben Gurion University of the Negev. Each one of the ten showcases represents a theme in the history of science, covering the sequence between the 17th and the 20th centuries, as reflected by the history of microscopy.
