  • 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.
  • The kids love this museum, it's their favourite place to go to. Science and technology combined with lots of things to do and explore. How does a chain reaction work. How do we clean our drinking water? What does the future of science research look like. A permanent collection combined with expositions makes it a nice visit for all ages. Best to pick a sunny day, than the museum is less crowded. The rooftop has an excellent view on Amsterdam and can also be entered free of charge. The food in the café is very diverse but expensive.
  • We enjoyed a fresh beer on the rooftop, comfortably sitting on a wooden bench, getting refreshed both by the small breeze and the water installations running all around. Perfect for a happy sunny afternoon
  • 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.
  • The NEMO science museum is a fun little stop (and just around the corner from some extremely good escape rooms). It's a childrens' science museum full of interactive and engaging exhibits. A brilliant half day (or so) out for the family.
