  • Really nice museum with many interacting activities! Children and adults are able to have a lot of fun in here + you can learn new things in a fun way.  more »
  • If you walk around the side there is a staircase up to the roof. Charge something like 3.5 Euros but that includes a drink. On a hot day it was the perfect spot. It had great views over the city and.....  more »
  • I can’t say anything about the museum because I haven’t been there, but I headed to it’s rooftop bar for sunset and I had an amazing time. For only €3.50 you can get on the rooftop terrace and have a....  more »

  • Very nice for kids! Well, it's also interesting for their parents to be honest :) you can easily spend there whole day without regrets. Toilets and food/drink corners on every floor. The top floor (fifth) is pretty much a food place which has much more options then other floors. You can pay with credit/debit card, use free lockers to leave your bags or just take them with you. You can exit and re-enter with your ticket which is great. All in all, nice place, especially if it rains outside :)
  • One of the greatest museums I have been to. A perfect place to get your children acquainted with science in a very funny and interactive way. A lot of astonishing games and cool experiences are offered. There is useful information even in the toilets!
  • It is probably a good place for children below 12. I went with my almost 15 year old daughter and we did not enjoy it so much. The museum offers many possibilities to discover basic science facts through experimentation. Presence of an adult to give side explanation is recommended.
  • Lots of activities and hands-on stuff for kids... but for adults, not so much. And there were quite a few displays that were out of service. In my opinion, the pricing scale was bizarre; children three and under get in for free;The museum is nice, not exactly big but has a lot to see. As an adult I feel that there was not much to see as many things were quite straight forward from the look of them.
  • Great outdoor space with fun activities for kids and great views of Amsterdam. This bit was free and didn't need a ticket. Worth a look! Also special shout out to whoever designed the hilarious map at the panorama area 👍😆
