Although there were many versions of the microscope in the 16th century, a scientist called Zaccharias Janssen and his son Han were the first to experiment with two lenses in a tube.

Early microscopes were made in Middelburg, The Netherlands in 1590 by Zacharias and Hans Jansen and Hans Lippershey.
The first microscope was made around 1595 in Middelburg, Holland. Three different eyeglass makers have been given credit for the invention: Hans Lippershey (who also developed the first real telescope); Hans Janssen; and his son, Zacharias.
The microscope was invented by Hans and Zaccharias Janssen sometime in 1590. This was a father and son team of Dutch eyeglass makers. They were the first known people to put two magnifying lenses in a tube, thus creating the compound microscope.
