Owner description: Expand your world at NEMO Science Museum. In the largest science museum of the Netherlands you will find proof that science and technology can be captivating for all ages. The remarkable building on top of the IJ-tunnel offers five floors of exciting hands-on activities. At NEMO you can experience the joy of science and technology, by blowing gigantic soap bubbles, watch an enormous chain reaction and experiment in a real laboratory. In a variety of exhibitions you can 'Take a journey through the mind' or learn that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to sustainable electricity and smart transportation at 'Smart Technology'. Enjoy a magnificent view over Amsterdam The creative mind behind NEMO, build in 1997, is Italian architect Renzo Piano. He had a clear vision for his design of the NEMO building, with its very own piazza 22 metres above water level. The spectacular roof terrace has a magnificent view over Amsterdam and the Eastern Docklands. You can access the roof terrace free of charge. The roof terrace and cafe in NEMO are the perfect places to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink.

Amsterdam has something or the other for everyone and the Nemo Science Museum is a place where you can definitely take your kids to.The green coloured building resembles a ship in the harbour.Entry tickets cost around 17 Euros and children can try out experiments by themselves.Its worth a visit!!

A looot of children, we took around 4 hours to visit because of the chaos. Must be patient, I think it's best to visit on school days when there are no children. Very interactive.

This was a disappointment a lot of the stuff wasn't working properly or broken. It was all mainly aimed at children ( we didn't take any children) and it was chaos. Kids will love it (when it works), adults not so much in my opinion. The staff were lovely and walking down the roof at the end was nice too.

We did not research enough about this museum thinking it was maritime. It’s actually for children to learn about science. We’re sitting in the 5th floor cafe overlooking Amsterdam, which partially justifies the entrance fee.

A brilliant looking building, with great views from the outside terrace on the top floor. Good mix of lots of interactive puzzles and games to keep young and old amused. Only thing that spoilt it for us, was a party of rude school children, who had no concept of waiting their turn. The restaurant/café on the top floor has a good range of food that was tasty.
