With the food of the future, humanity will be able to feed more than 10 billion people by 2050 with minimal harm to our planet. This is achievable if we now take an original and efficient approach to our food and its production. The exhibition ‘Spacefarming: the future of food’ focuses on a food revolution.

Koert van Mensvoort, director of Next Nature, says, "We are at the beginning stage of a new food revolution. The ideas we present here are just the tip of the innovation iceberg. It gives me confidence that the world will be able to feed 10 billion people by 2050."

The exhibition ‘RetroFuture’ explores how people in the past envisioned the future and what our expectations of the future are today.

The future repeats itself and evolution continues.

What seemed quite strange not long ago is now familiar (think of video calling). What was once unimaginable is now normal (think of flying). Many visions of the future remained science fiction (like time travel). What does this mean for how we look at the future today? What can we learn from yesterday's futurists?

VR Time Machine

Step into our spectacular Virtual Reality Time Machine and travel millions of years into the future. Experience the same awe-inspiring sensation that astronauts feel when they gaze upon our planet from space, and explore the vast universe with its infinite number of supernovas and galaxies.

To embark on the time travel journey, you need a valid entrance ticket and an additional VRTM ticket. Purchase your VR Time Machine ticket separately or as a combo ticket with a Next Nature Museum entrance ticket.
