  • An excellent museum with many activities for children. A family with children must not skip it. Suitable for recreation. Creative games. The highlight of the five-floor rooftop restaurant and dining tables and open spaces. Water games for children. On a hot day you should bring their bathing suits. Great view from above onto the ships and Maritime Museum. Admission: EUR 16.5. Half price student.

  • Very cool place and a lot of fun climbing to the top. There is a great view with a bar and some fountains to help keep you cool on those hot days. I would highly recommend experiencing this place.
  • We were a group of 6 20-year old science interested youth. I'd say about 20% was midly interesting and 10% was interesting. Okay view at the top. Nice that they have a student discount.
  • Great! Full of simple experiments. Completely bilingual so a great experience to learn Dutch. Watch the water clock at 12 am!
  • Great place. Crowded. But nice to see that so many kids are taking science seriously. Really cool! Worth visiting also for English speakers - attractions and texts are translated to English as well.
  • So much to see here. It is perfect for kids and adults. I wish I had more time and energy to explore. It is a must-see for all ages on your next trip to Amsterdam.
