  • That is, a real fun! Despite having 25 years, enjoyed like crazy in this particular "Museum"! Yes because the more that a Museum is a real "esperimentificio" where children and adults can make optical experiments, of gravity, motion! Is a really great Museum, with 3 floors pienissimi of games! The price in my opinion is appropriate for what you are offering and students, rather than paying the entire (15 euro) pay well. At the entrance you can also find lockers for storing backpacks and vests so that you can enjoy this experience in the best way! Have fun!!

  • Great museum and really interactive. Unfortunately we got in about 1 hour before the closing time and didn't get the change to appreciate everything properly. Make sure you try the 5 cent coin press that will engrave the NEMO museum logo in the coin. Great souvenir basically free.
  • Perfect place to learn about science for big and small! Loved all the exhibits, made me feel like a kid again. Make sure to spend the whole day there--there is so much to see snd to do. Also loved the eatery on the rooftop. Great range of fresh and delicious food and the view over the Amsterdam bay area is just breathtaking. I can hang out there all day.
  • Very cool museum! Lots of fun activities, based on science, for kids (and the adults who think they're kids). Would recommend for everybody!
  • The roof terrace climb is a must - 120 shallow steps make it easy to reach and its great fun up their for children as well - you can have a drink whilst they play and admire the view out over Amsterdam. My wife and I enjoy this!
  • There's a lot of fun experiments of science. It's not a museum of exhibition. I loved the most of the games in it.
