  • Booked this via trip advisor before we arrived in Amsterdam. It was such a good day. We arrived just after 11am and left just before 6pm!! Kids aged 4 and 6 loved it. There was a lot to do for them...

  • For locals with VIPcards, please note that they will first scan your cards, after that they will charge you separately per child, because technically it's for 18+. So be aware of that.

  • Great place for kids. Ours are 4 and 5 years old. They both had an incredible time. Science, technology and innovation is explained in a playful, thoughtful and simple enough way for the little ones to understand (most of it). Plus: it's interesting as a parent as well! There's interactive equipment everywhere and the staff are the friendliest people you'll meet in Amsterdam.
  • Amazing place to learn science for both kids and adults. Lots and lots of experiments and labs, super cool science lessons and demonstrations! Your inside scientist could not ask for more!! We spent the entire day here and still could not do all the activities! We will be going back again! The staff put in so much effort with the labs and the chain reaction demonstration- it’s commendable and mind blowing!! Loved it!!
  • The whole experience was great. Quick entry and we spent nearly 6 hours there and could still needed more time to go through every exhibit. Enjoyed the interactive exhibits and the fact that our grandchildren could take part in everything. Eating our own prepacked lunch on the roof was lovely because we didn't have to be concerned for an allergic child's dietary needs. The children loved "swimming" in the water feature on the roof as a way to cool off. We were thankful for the advice to take a change of clothes! The staff were incredibly helpful and the venue was clean and neat. At times I think the adults had more fun than the children. This outing is highly recommended for young , parents and even grandparents.
  • This museum really is interesting. Almost everything is interactive so it's good to visit it with kids! It's enjoyable to learn while having fun! There was a lot of people but since there were much things to do it wasn't really disturbing
  • This place is just amazing for kids and adults alike. My four year world was just so excited and happy to be here. We can surely come back again and again. Great museum for older kids to understand the science behind many things. For small kids these are games, they just love playing and can't have enough of 😁
