What will you be having for breakfast, lunch or dinner in 2050? Where will this food be sourced? And how will it be prepared? Edible insects? A hamburger made from cultured meat? Or powders based on your DNA profile?

It may sound far-fetched, but with a growing world population we must carefully consider how to grow our food in the future. At our Future Food exhibition (i.c.w. NEMO Science Museum) you will get an insight into your future meals based on plantbased, animal based and functional food scenarios.

From exploring fungal futures and designing your own vegetables, to getting to know Ira van Eelen and browsing through speculative dishes from our bistro in vitro — this will be a date to remember.


Besides a visit to the exhibition you can also participate in workshops such as tasting insects, testing your nose and developing your future recipe. Workshops are held in both Dutch and English.

Evening programme on Wednesdays

In addition to a visit to the exhibition, you can also attend various workshops, lectures and other events on Wednesday evenings. Please note most of these activities are held in Dutch. You can find the full programme here.

Location, opening hours and tickets

You can visit Future Food between 10 July and 6 October 2019 at the Studio at the Marineterrein. The Studio is open on Wednesdays from 10:00-22:00 and Thursday through Sunday from 10:00-17:30. The Studio is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
