Home and Hobby

Microscopes for kids and hobbyists include good quality, affordable compound microscopes for everyday use.

We recommend monocular microscopes for younger kids but remember, they should view with both eyes open! Binocular microscopes become the recommended microscope as soon as their eyes are wide enough apart to use two eyepieces. Trinocular is good for anyone interested in photomicrography.

We also cater for the Home Hobbyist for whom we recommend the Omano OM36 or OM88. Alternatively, the Omano OM 118 Series offers a lower priced option.

Increasingly, customers add a digital USB microscope camera for that WOW factor!
