Best time to visit
Between 10:00 and 13:00
  • See how things work and function through the glasses of a mad professor or an inventive engineer! This stuff is for grown ups and kids
  • Head up to the roof for great Amsterdam views, and to play with sundials and kites in 'Energetica', designed to help you learn about the elements and how renewable energy works
  • Learn about the power of the mind, see a timeline of scientific discoveries, find out what's in a kiss and more in a hands-on day out for all ages

Science can be FUN! That's what you'll come away thinking after your trip to the Science Center Nemo, just minutes from Amsterdam's Centraal Station. This ginormous green building is the biggest science center in the Netherlands and home to 5 exciting floors of hands-on science stuff. Learn things like how and why the wind blows, what makes a rainbow, how to whisper to someone standing 15 feet away, and blow bubbles big enough to stand in. You'll wonder why you didn't find Nemo sooner.

There are too many exhibitions inside to mention but you can't miss Sensational Science. We encounter physics every day, whenever there's a rainbow, or when our clean clothes throw off sparks. Here you can create phenomena like this yourself and learn how it works at the same time.

In Science throughout the Ages you can see a timeline of discoveries by scientists all over the world and journey through the Age of Enlightenment with old travel journals and atlases. In Journey through the mind you'll learn what makes our brains tick - with the Emotion Grabber you can even add your facial expressions to a computer game!

Smart Technology teaches how we can all save energy, produce our own electricity sustainably and reduce the amount of CO2 we send up into the atmosphere, and World of Shapes turns maths into a fun tool you can use (yes really).

We could go on forever about this place, but we'll leave the rest for you to discover. Release your inner mad scientist and have fun!

Nice museum with lots of experiments and content. Mostly made for kids so a bit disappointing for adults & young people because of the crowds/children everywhere.

Five floors of interactive learning. Children from the age of 4 upwards can build things, create things and learn about the application of science. There is a lab where a parent and child can do an experiment. The rooftop restaurant featues a water fountain with pumps so children can see the flow of water coming out based upon the energy they are using on the pump.
Recommend spending at least two to three hours at the museum.

This was the best science museum I’ve visited so far. I would highly recommend this for family with children of all age except on the 5th floor where there is some inappropriate content for young kids. Just make sure not to let your young ones wander around on that floor. We were at the museum for 3 hours, but wished we had come much earlier. You would need at least 5 hours to go though all the activities & learning. We had no problem with language as every scripts were translated in English. The staff was very helpful.

Lots of activities for children, exiting, interesting and fun
