  • Museum where children and adults can experience fun! Very playful. You can easily stay 1 h 30 - 2 h. In addition, this Museum, there are a very nice view of Amsterdam.

  • It is basically for children and is not cheap. Was in the one in London (free) which for me and my son(9) was much better. There are plenty of exhibits but not enough assistants. 
  • Great things to see and very interesting for the children, we all had a great time at Nemo . Don't miss it on your trip to Amsterdam.

  • 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.
