The Yeast Cell
The Yeast Cell is situated in the Tapping Hall. The exhibition brings you right in close to the fascinating world of micro-organisms, while the enormous clock takes you back in time and tells the history of the Tapping Hall.
How can the micro-organisms found in yeast help us humans to make food, medicine and much more? The Yeast Cell exhibition teaches children and adults about this fascinating micro-world. Whether you look at bread making, beer brewing or the fuels of the future, yeast cells play an important role.
In the Yeast Cell exhibition, you can find out more about the roles that yeast and yeast cells play in our daily lives, you can cultivate a colony of mega yeast cells or you can take a break in the lounge area.
The Yeast Cell is supported by the Carlsberg Foundation.
Outside the Yeast Cell hangs the mechanical Tapping Hall clock. Through fascinating mechanical solutions, the clock describes the history of the production that took place in the former tapping hall.
You can see what the old tapping hall looked like from the 1920s to the 1940s, and in just one minute you will discover how they made orangeade back then – from harvesting and pressing the fruit to tapping and distribution.
The Tapping Hall clock is supported by the Tuborg Foundation.
