When you comparison shop for a microscope, the specifications are usually very similar. What the specifications can't tell you is the overall quality and reliability of the microscope. There are plenty of poorly manufactured low-cost microscopes on the market that look like a bargain-until you start using it. The Home Microscope is different. First, it is built to our unique, high quality standards. Then our experienced quality control specialists inspect and adjust every Home Microscope in our facility here to ensure it is perfect before we ship it to you. Finally, we back up our top quality commitment with a lifetime warranty on this Home Science Tools microscope. These extra steps do add some extra cost but are well worth it as they ensure you get an enjoyable-to-use, trouble-free microscope that will last a lifetime. Don't just take our word for it—read the product reviews and see what our customers have to say.

About the Home Microscope

Quality. The quality of the Home Microscope is exceptional. These microscopes are built to our own unique specifications for safety, mechanical reliability, optical quality, and overall usability. Then each microscope is inspected and tuned by our experienced microscope technician at our US facility before the microscope is shipped to you. This process ensures you'll receive a high-quality, reliable instrument that is working perfectly.

Lighting. The Home Microscope has fluorescent lighting, which is a cooler, brighter illumination than the standard tungsten that most scopes at similar prices have. With fluorescent illumination you'll have more flexibility for viewing greater specimen variety.

Lifetime Warranty. Unlike some of the other educational microscopes you might see online, Home Science Tools guarantees that your Home Microscope will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for the life of the instrument – so if you have any problems, we are happy to repair or replace your microscope immediately.

Value. The Home Microscope was developed with students and homeschool families in mind. You get an easy and enjoyable to use, trouble-free microscope that will last a lifetime. It is possible to find cheaper microscopes, but we are confident that you won't find better value for your money.

Excellent! Review by
This is exactly what we needed! Great product, prompt delivery. Definitely worth the money and looks like it will last for my youngest as well! Reminds me of high school biology labs!
Happy customer Review by
I was very pleased with the product, price and speedy delivery! It came within 3 days of ordering... just in time for our first lab!
Just what we wanted! Review by
We've been wanting a microscope for some time, and finally decided this was the one. Not only did our order arrive very quickly, but everything was packed very well and arrived in tip-top shape. The microscope is easy to use, great quality, and a tool I know we will use MANY times in the years to come. I would highly recommend this microscope for it's quality, price, and ease of operation.
excellent Review by
this microscope is excellent, you get more microscope than you pay for!
Just right Review by
Bought this for my two 7th graders. It is very well made and easy to use. We used it this week for lab, and it was just right.
perfect for high school Review by
I ordered this microscope to be used in our homeschool co-op Biology class. It works great, as expected. Easy to use and arrived really quick in time for that first class.
A Great Find Review by
We had looked for a long time for a quality microscope that we could afford. This seems to be the one.
Great Tool! Review by
After many months of debate and research, we purchased this microscope for our homeschooling son. He's going in the 7th grade. I absolutely am happy with the purchase a great tool and quality product.
Excellent Choice for Home Review by
After much research on an affordable QUALITY microscope we chose this one. It came nicely packaged for shipping with everything in place. We literally took it out of the box and began using it. The directions are clear and concise, and I love the fact it comes with an additional bulb. This makes a wonderful addition to our science studies.
Home microscope Review by
Nicely packaged, everything needed to look closely at anything too small for the eye. Good to keep and use elementary through high school, and affordable! Great quality product!
BEST EVER! Review by
It was really good for our family. Every one uses and loved it. It worked amazing and lasted forever!!! It was the first thing I had got from this website and it was great I will deffinetly buy from this website again.
Great Microscope! Review by
We are a homeschool family using this microscope for a 7th grader and a 9th grader. It is excellent for both of them (as well as two younger ones also wanting to look in at their "cool stuff to see"). Very good quality.
Great Buy! Review by
Thank you for the quick shipping and at such an affordable price! Everything was packaged so well and handled with care. My 14 year old son's eyes lit up the second he saw his new microscope! We are thoroughly pleased with the microscope and Home Science Tools! It is always a concern ordering through a new company...I hope this review will help put other potential buyers at ease.
Love it Review by
We love this microscope! We are a homeschool family, and it was well worth the money we spent. It is simple enough for the youngest to use but high quality enough for high school Biology labs. It comes with a thick plastic dust cover, so unless you are doing a lot of traveling or it will be stored for large periods of time (such as over the summer in a public school setting), I would think buying the carrying case is not an investment a family may want to make. I bought the case, but upon receiving the order, realized there is really no need for it. But, at least we have it if we ever need it for one reason or another....
Best Micoscope Review by
This is a great buy, and a great piece of equipment. I had one when I was little, and I loved it. Then as I got older I bought a microscope for my children. Now I got the chance to help my grandson find and explore the world around him.
A quality microscope for my homeschoolers! Review by
This microscope is much like the one I used in high school. I'm confident it will serve us from 5th grade through high school. I am pleased & impressed with all of the homesciencetools products I've ordered thus far. Thank you for enhancing my children's homeschool experience.

Great Microscope Review by
My 12 year old grandson was so excited when we opened and tried out this microscope. He had no trouble setting up the scope and viewing the enclosed slide. He can't wait to make his own slide! It is a wonderful homeshooling tool!
microscope review Review by
Love the home microscope, very easy for the kids to use. Bought the microscope kit as well and the kids are having a blast finding things to look at. My son even did some "nasal gunk!" The others weren't even disgusted.
LOVE IT Review by
This is a great microscope for homeschooling. My kids love it! Very affordable!
Microscope for home Review by
We have enjoyed our microscope thus far. Our son has shown an increase interest to science and looks forward to studying.
durable Review by
These are the microscopes I use for home school coop Biology labs. I have only had one have focusing issues even after being used and moved yearly by students.
Great microscope Review by
We ordered this microscope for an online biology class. It has exceeded our expectations. Very durable and easy to use. The whole family has enjoyed it.
Great Microscope Review by
This is a great microscope for homeschoolers! Our daughter uses it for her biology lessons. It is well worth the price.

Great microscope Review by
This is a great microscope! We can't wait to start our new science curriculum. Very good quality. Great price. Came highly recommened by a homeschool dad that is a scientist. will definately recommend to other homeschoolers.
AMAZING!!!!! Review by
This is a great microscope! I love to use it. I also purchased the Prepared Slides Set 1. The lenses are very sturdy and I enjoy it very much. It is really a high quality microscope. Thanks, HST!!!!!!
home microscope Review by
bought this for my son and we love it. the access to the video series was very helpful. thank you
Quite Pleased Review by
Very happy with this microscope. Read the reviews, and thus far, it has shown to be excellent and true to others comments. Thankful for the price, as it was lower than the Apologia microscope we were looking at, and it still allows us to do our studies the same.
great 4 kids Review by
It is an awesome tool to have. It is durable and easy to figure out. The kids love it and it works great!!!!!!!!
good beginner Review by
i bought this for my homeschoolers. the free slides that came with it were fun. we were unable to see the paramecium, germinating pollen and cheek cells. these were the only ones that required 400x. the other slides we could see perfectly.
Extremely pleased Review by
After reading all the reviews, I chose this microscope, hoping it would be as good as it sounded. It is. I am very impressed with it and feel it was well worth the cost. It's a huge step up from the cheaper microscopes we've had in the past, and I am confident it will carry us through my kids' high school years. I especially like being able to focus so accurately.
Retiree Hobby Review by
As a retiree wanting a hobby to explore natural history, I looked for a serious microscope model which had proven its durability by being handled by much younger hands. I made the right choice with this model - it arrived within 4 days of ordering, and the shipping cost was less than $7. It is durable, easy to use, and the optics are superb. It has opened up a new world for me and is providing an interesting and meaningful hobby which I can pass on to my grandchildren.
Great Starter Microscope Review by
We ordered this microscope for two reasons: cost and previous reviews. We didn't really *need* a microscope, but with two budding scientists-in-training, we had to have one. This microscope is sturdy and images are crystal clear. We can't wait to begin making our own slides!
An Excellent Value Review by
Am very pleased with the Home Microscope and assessories. They are as advertised. The turret and fine focus operate smoothly and the wide field eye piece is very convenient. First time ordering from Home Science Tools, and the process went quickly and smoothly.
Pure happiness! Review by
My girls are so excited to have received this in the mail today!! Super easy to use and it works better than expected. I can't tear them away, all I hear is Mom you gotta see this!!
Wonderful!! Review by
This is wonderful microscope for a great price! It is easy to use and works great. I've worked in labs and used very expensive microscopes and I'm amazed at how clear the images are!
Highly pleased Review by
I was looking for a microscope to specifically use with Apologia's Biology course and was a little leary ordering anything different than what they had suggested. Based on the great reviews we took a chance on this microscope due to the great savings in price. We have not been disappointed and my children have used it a great deal experimenting on their own outside of school time. Very easy to use yet high quality and wonderful magnification and clarity for our needs. Highly recommended if you are looking for decreasing price without sacrificing quality and reliability. First time ordered from Home Science Tools and found them prompt, reliable, and very customer friendly!
Exactly What We Were Looking For! Review by
This is a great microscope and a great price. It was shipped very quickly. We've had great fun using it from the moment we took it out of the box. It is easy to use. It is a well manufactured product which I am sure will last throughout our children's homeschool careers.
Great Microscope Review by
I had looked at many microscopes online and finally settled on this one. I am glad I did because it turned out to be a perfect fit for our homeschool. Just be sure you clean off all the lenses when you unpack it. I was almost ready to send it back because I thought there was a scratch on one of the lenses - it was actually something on the eyepiece lens!
Great New Addition for Homeschooling Review by
We just got this microscope in the mail along with the stuff needed for use with the Alpha Omega Curriculum, we love it. We don't start school for another 2 weeks but my 10 year old already looked at the prepared slides and was so interested. She already wants to starting making slides of her own. I was very nervous when we decided to buy a microscope as it is a big investment. I was so happy with everything I found on this site and the quality of the microscope is the same as the ones I remember using in school. I think for the the price and quality this is a very good product and hope to get many years of use our of it especially since I will be using it for 3 kids. Great buy!!
Great scope for homeschool Review by
We did not really know what we were looking for in a scope but after looking at many options we decided on this one and are thrilled with the decision. This is an excellent addition to our homeschool labs and our farm equipment inventory. We also bought a dissection kit and have been making our own slides from the specimens for enhancement of learning. We have a farm and have used the scope to look at animal parts, feathers, fur, poop and the children have learned a great deal from this versatile scope!
First Microscope Review by
This is our first time purchasing a microscope. The quality seems great! Heavy enough to not be treated as a toy and advanced enough that it should last through all our homeschooling needs. Great buy!
Awesome Review by
I was afraid to purchase this microscope because I don't know anything about them. I read everyone's reviews and decided to order. I homeschool and my kids needed the microscope for their lab. I am so amazed at the quality of this microscope. It was packed very well and even stamped with the packers names. My kids and I are so excited to start using it.
UNBELIEVABLE!!! A+++ Review by
This microscope was a gift for my son's 10th birthday. I cannot believe the quality of this microscope. I had expected something of very cheap quality, since the price was so reasonable. My son just loves it along with his 4 siblings. I love that the eye piece moves so each child can have a look, without having to move them or pick up the microscope! We will be doing business again :) Thank you for making my son's day extra special.
First time buyer Review by
My wife homeschools our kids and I was not sure what to expect to pay when buying a microscope. I thought for this price I would probably get a low quality all plastic cheap "toy". I was very happy to find this quality grade piece of equipment for a reasonable price.
Awesome Microscope Review by
As homeschoolers, we were concerned that we would not be able to afford high quality science equipment. Thankfully, a friend referred me to Home Science Tools. We are so thrilled with the affordable microscope. To make things easier we added a mechanical stage. We could not be happier with this product!
Excellent Optics Review by
I shopped around for a microscope a few weeks and settled on this one at last. I am most satisfied with my purchase and am convinced after viewing the slides included in the free microscope stater set that I made the best choice for my family. This microscope is well built and has excellent optics. The quality cannot be beat for the price and rivals many higher priced scopes I've researched.
Best Microscope Review by
I am thirteen and love this microscope! It is perfect for looking at any size object! The only thing was when I got it the dust cover was torn but I just called customer service and they are sending me a new one! I love this company and this will be the only company I will buy science supplies from!!
Great Microscope! Review by
We bought this microscope when my son started 6th grade Switched-On Schoolhouse Science. It was perfect for that course, and we have also used it for impromptu explorations of our own. Most recently, my daughter was learning about the structure of bird feathers and we used it to look at a feather up close. This microscope is very sturdy, easy to use, and a great value. We look forward to using it for many years of home education.
Perfect! Review by
My son and I used this for his high school biology course, and it was perfect. And, what a great price.
Great detail Review by
We already owned a microscope for my daughter's homeschool use, but needed a stronger one to use with her Alpha Omega science course. This one is perfect! The color and detail are amazing. I find my daughter looking at samples that aren't assigned to her, just for fun! We love it.
Very Satisfied Review by
I wasn't sure what I would get when I ordered the Home Microscope. Your website made it easy for me to choose the correct one I needed. When I got it I was very impressed. It is very sturdy, easy to use and works great. I am satisfied.
Great Product Review by
I ordered several microscopes for my co-op and I'm very please with the purchase. They are high quality microscopes that are strong and sturdy and can handle a lot of use.
Great Value Review by
We ordered this for our four children (ages 8-14) as a Christmas gift. We also splurged on the mechanical stage and some prepared slides. I majored in microbiology and spent hours looking into microscopes and wanted to be sure we got a good quality microscope for the money. This has a solid "feel" and great resolution for the home enthusiast. Spend your money well and buy this rather than getting several cheaper microscopes over time that will have to be replaced. My 6th grader, especially, has been having fun with it but I know all of them will enjoy it as time goes on.
Great Product Review by
This microscope is leaps and bounds better than any we have ever tried. I was so pleased to see the price as well. It even came with a spare light bulb. Wonderful!
We Really Like It Review by
We bought this for Christmas and think it's wonderful. It's easy to use, the light is clear and bright. It's so much fun to see things up close! We're happy with our purchase.
Amazing! Review by
Just ordered this for my 6th grader, homeschooling for the first time, he is so excited now to be homeschooled, due to this microscope, he says it is actually better than the ones at his old school. We are both so excited to be homeschooling now, thank you Home Sciene Tools!
Great Piece of Equipment Review by
I bought this for my 5th grader and we both are very impressed by the quality of the product and how easy it is to use. In the past my kids have saved up for those plastic toy microscopes. They were so much work to use. This one is very sturdy and very easy to focus.
Home Microscope Review by
Absolutely stunning resolution. You can see so clearly, it's hard to not be tempted to just spend the day "finding" things to put under the scope for just plain fun besides for lessons. A serious microscope and a seriously great value.
Great Microscope! Review by
This is a great microscope we have had it for only a few weeks but have a great time working with it daily. I have an 8th grader and a 12th grader and both have been working with it as well as myself and we couldn't be more pleased. I check out lots of places and you cannot get a microscope of this quality or price anywhere else. great buy.
Home Microscope Review by
Great price, excellent quality. I can't wait for my kids to start using it!
Home Microscope Review by
Great quality, great investment for homeschoolers. I am very pleased that we made this purchase.
Like It!!! Review by
I was very happy to feel how sturdy this microscope was when it arrived. We are homeschooling four children and the first one is going to use the microscope this year and then it needs to last through the other three and it definitely seems heavy duty enought to hold up. Thanks for the fast shipping and we will be ordering specimens soon!
home microscope review Review by
The home microscope was ordered for homeschool use. We were pleasantly surprised. I expected a good microscope but it turned out to be great! It is wonderful quality and really easy to use. You definetly get more for your money. I recommend it to anyone looking to buy a microscope whether it be for school or fun.
Excellent Quality Review by
I work in a medical lab and use a microscope daily at work. I was stunned to see the high quality in this one I bought for my son to use in his homeschool. The objectives are the same ones we use at work. My son wasn't that keen on using it at first, but we looked at some of the starter slides and now he keeps wanting to go back and do more.
Home Microscope Review Review by
After searching for microscopes and reading reviews, we ordered the Home Microscope and we were extremely surprised once it arrived. The microscope is very well built and has exceeded our expectations. We have six students in the house that will be using this microscope and we feel confident that it will stand the test of time with each one of them being able to use it. We would definitely recommend this microscope for your homeschool science needs!
Amazing Quality Review by
Excellent quality microscope. We have had to buy a microscope every year due to the cheap ones breaking constantly. This time I went ahead and spent the extra money for a nice one and it is built much better. This microscope is much more durable, the light is much brighter which presents a clearer picture and magnification is better. It also is not made of the cheap plastic you get with the others. I am very satisfied with my purchase. This was definitely worth every penny.
Disappointment but Good Recovery Review by
The disappointment came when my daughter opened the gift on Christmas morning only to find that the eyepiece was disconnected (broken) from the microscope. The rivots that connect the eyepiece never got attached to the scope; it should have been checked before it was shipped. Needless to say, big disappointment the morning of Christmas. The only decent part of the story was they sent me a new microscope immediately (even though it was sent by ground and I didn't receive it for another week). The new scope is great but the event certainly reduced the enthusiasm and excitement of receiving a new scope for Christmas ... that can't be replaced.
Great investment Review by
This is a great investment. My kids and I have been frusterated with cheap microscopes in the past. This one is of good quality and we're able to see our slides in great detail. My kids will be able to use this microscope well into their high school years. The free starter pack [a special offer from Home Science Tools] is a great value also. I highly recommend this product.
Robust Microscope Review by
I bought this microscope this year for my freshman daughter's biology course and we have been very impressed with it. Works very well for high school level science courses. It has opened up a whole new and very interesting world for our whole family.
best Christmas gift ever Review by
my daughter loves it! and so does the rest of the "children" in the family . . . my dad, my husband, and myself. recommend purchasing a set of prepared slides . . . so you can enjoy instant science!
worthy investment Review by
We purchased this microscope about 5 years ago and I can say that it has been a worthy investment! It's sturdy, accurate, and good quality. Three of my chilren have used it for science projects and I'm sure it will be around for my toddler. I definitely recommend this item.
Home Microscope Review by
We gave this to our daughter for 2008 Christmas. What a wonderful product. We also bought the accessory kit and we spent much of the day looking through the microscope. It sits on our kitchen counter and we are very happy with the quality of this product.
A Great Quality Microscope - Reasonable Price Review by
I purchased this microscope for my 13 year old granddaughter whom I homeschool. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality this microscope presented. We've had so much fun looking at different slides... We've learned so much. Thank you for a well built, quality tool that we can use to further our education...
Home Microscope Review by
In the words of my four boys, "It actually works!" We have wasted a lot of money on cheap microscopes over the years. The boys were like kids in the candy store taking out slides and viewing them. They can't wait to actually use it in their schooling. Thanks for a wonderful product at an excellent price.
Great value Review by
We opened the box and were able to use it right away. So easy to use. Thanks Home Science Tools.
Great for homeschool! Review by
This is a great buy for such a good quality microscope. I bought it so I could teach biology at home to my high-schooler, but it's been great to have for my other kids too, who are having fun learning how to make their own slides. Easy to use, very clear, makes science more fun, and opens up a whole new area of learning!
Perfect for Young Scientists! Review by
I am so excited about this product! I am a teacher who homeschools in South Korea. We've never "bitten the bullet" and bought a good microscope, instead chosing lesser models with predictable results. Now that my kids are in middle school, I thought it was time to invest in a quality instrument. What a fabulous choice! This microscope does everything you need it to. It is extremely sturdy and is a better quality than I have had in classrooms. Not only will I take this one back to the classroom when it is time, I will also buy one for my nieces and nephews! It comes extremely well packaged in form fitting styrofoam inside a cardbaord box, and is perfect for those who move frequently. It also has the sturdy plastic sleeve to cover and protect it. I want to also mention how incredibly quickly it was shipped! With an APO it is sometimes unpredictable, but HST got this item to us in record time! Have no doubts about buying this product for your basic homeschooling or classroom needs. It also makes a great Christmas or birthday gift for your young scientist!
Home Microscope review Review by
This is a great microscope for homeschoolers. It's easy to use for a variety of ages, easy to care for and take care of, and does an awesome job. We love it!
Great Microscope Review by
Excellent buy- works perfectly for our small academy! Would recommend to others!
Home Microscope Review by
We have been searching for a microscope for homeschool for quite a while. We are very pleased with the home microscope. I wanted one that was affordable but will be good quality for middle school and high school. This one is perfect for us!
Very Satisfied Review by
I remember using my dad's microscope when I was a kid and loving it. I wanted to give that same experience to my kids, but I didn't want to waste our time with the cheap toy store versions you often see. This is the microscope I was looking for! It's made of solid/heavy metal and has all of the parts that I expect on a microsocpe. I am very glad I bought it, and my kids are glad too. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a case. I wish it had a wood (or even heavy plastic) case.
Home microscope Review by
Wonderful!! My youngest son has one but won't let me use it for my shelties. So I purchased one for me! It does everything I need it to do. Thanks!
Home Microscope Review by
I really haven't ever used a microscope much in the last 20 years but my kids love this microscope and said it was better than the ones at school.
Great! Review by
This is a great microscope! After purchasing 5 for our very small Christian school, I personally bought one for my neice. And then I recommended it to another small school looking for a quality microscope at an awesome price. Easy to use and very durable!
Great Microscope for a Great Price!!!! Review by
This is a great microscope and the delivery was almost one week prior to the expected date. We can't wait to start working on our various science projects with this great new addition to our homeschool curriculum.
What a fun microscope!!! Review by
This microscope is awesome! My sister wants all the slides she can get her hands on!! The microscope is very high quality for a great price. What a great product!!!
Suprisingly high quality! =] Review by
I just received this microscope and absolutely LOVE it! I was surprised by the sturdy/heavy duty construction. With the free starter kit that you can add to your order, I was able to examine slides the same evening. The microscope's eyepiece was not attached - luckily my roommate had the right wrench to adjust the screws to mount the eyepiece.
Better Than Video Games!!!!! Review by
Love this microscope! We are not a home-schooled family but this is already feeding my 12 year old daughter's fascination for science. As good, if not better, than the one at school according to her science teacher who assisted me in choosing the right microscope for this past Christmas. I have already donated blood and cheek cell tissue for her to study and am amazed at the detail we can see! Very easy to use also. We also purchased the hard case to store it safely.
Home Microscope Review by
A must have for all homeschooling families or any family with children. My children use this microscope everyday to explore the world around them. Their friends bring specimens over to look at! It is a great learning tool!
Makes Our Studies come Alive! Review by
We have had our microscope for a week and it is making our biology lessons come alive before our very eyes. I am glad we spent the money to purchase it.
It is WONDERFUL!!! Review by
I just received the microscope yesterday (very quick delivery) and fell in love with it immediately. We had bought one a couple of years ago, but couldn't see through it. This one is easy to use, and the visual is GREAT!!! The kids had a blast looking at stuff through it, and cannot wait for their science experiments to start. I would HIGHLY recommend this product!!! Thank you so much! Well worth the small price!
Great Microscope Review by
I just received this microscope yesterday. I was very impressed with the quality of the product. It was easy to use, and worked great. I would recommend this microscope to anyone.
science geek mom has a dream fulfilled:) Review by
We purchased this scope for my son's birthday and my husband said he couldn't tell who was more excited, me or my son. Levi and I had a great time together using the scope. As a science teacher my opinion is that this scope is high quality and a great price. This purchase will encourage lots of great science inquiry and learning for our family.
Awesome product and service! Review by
I bought this for my son for Christmas, and he loves it. It's just like the ones he uses at school. He uses it everyday. What a great way to bring science into the home.
Great homeschooling microscope Review by
This is a great microscope for homeschoolers. It's easy to use for a variety of ages, easy to care for and take care of, and does an awesome job. We love it!
Wonderful product! Review by
This microscope is great. I looked at microscopes for a long time before deciding on this one. The price is good and the clarity is wonderful. We had tried kids microscopes, but they were not clear enough to see plant cells. I am VERY pleased with my choice.
More than Awesome! Review by
From the time this microscope arrived this morning until now, my two teens have been engrossed in looking at various slides. This is a substantial microscope. High quality, and exceeds all my expectations. Biology is going to be very interesting this year. I highly recommend this microscope. It fits most homeschool budgets and will get years of use.

I found this microscope easy to use,most of all very useful.My family have made several slides and have found it fascinating looking at what we dont see with our own eyes.we have just completed a leaf slide,and now we are making a bacteria slide.My student is now interested in looking at many other things under our scope. I am so glad that i purchased this.

We ordered this microscope for our home school, and it has exceeded our expectations. The light is cool and provides smooth, flicker-free viewing. The swivel eyepiece allows us each to view the specimen without having to move around. This piece of equipment is sturdy and should be around for many years.
