Quantum gas microscopes are a powerful tool which can be used study particles confined to an optical lattice. By fluorescing trapped particles under an objective with a high numerical aperture it is possible to obtain single site resolution of the optical lattice. This has already been demonstrated with atoms and has paved the way for a novel platform for simulation experiments for lattice potentials. However, in optical lattices atoms have poor interactions between neighbouring sites. Here, we present our progress towards a quantum gas microscope for RbCs and KCs molecules. With molecules the issue of poor interactions is mitigated owing to the dipole - dipole interactions exhibited by molecules in neighbouring sites allowing us to more readily probe the relevant terms in the lattice Hamiltonian.
