Antique Microscopes on Display at San Francisco International Airport Museum
At the end of December 2011, the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Museum opened “A World Examined: Microscopes from the Age of Enlightenment to the Twentieth Century,” an exhibit featuring a selection of antique microscopes from the Golub Collection at the University of California, Berkeley. The exhibit will run through the end of June 2012. The Golub Collection is on permanent display in the Valley Life Sciences Building at UC Berkeley.
“This collection is visually stunning and historically unsurpassed,” said Steve Ruzin, who has been the Golub Collection curator since 2003 and runs the Biological Imaging Facility at Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources as his day job, as well as teaching classes in microscopy. “The SFO Museum is providing an amazing platform to expand the audience for this great piece of science history.”
