NEMO Science Museum Amsterdam

NEMO is a fun and interactive science center, perfect for kids of all ages – adults too!

The eye-catching building is designed by the renowned architect Renzo Piano

Fenomena, at the first floor, is great for younger kids

Technium, at the second floor, offers a lot of hands-on experiences on everyday technology

Elementa is about how the cosmos works. We spent tons of time here trying to defend planet Earth!

At Humania you discover all about the human kind

The restaurant at the rooftop is designed by Renzo Piano

The rooftop square is also designed by Renzo Piano, as is the water feature – which is lots of fun for kids for warm days! The roof terrace is open freely to everyone (no need for a ticket to access it)

The view from the rooftop is unique, as NEMO is the highest city square in Amsterdam

Here is the plan of the museum. There are also demonstrations and workshops in the museum

Practical stuff
*Open Tuesday – Sunday 10.00-17.30 (open every day during school holidays)
*Cost: for 4+ years old EUR 17.50, 0-3 years old free entrance
*You need to reserve in advance! No tickets are sold at the entrance
*You can get tickets here:
*No Covid Pass required (only required at the catering points)
*Be prepared to spend easily 3+ hours here (and most probably not experience everything!)
*There is a restaurant at the rooftop, a coffe bar at the 2nd floor and a café near the ticket inspection point
*Stroller and wheelchair friendly (except for the Energetica exhibition on the rooftop square)
*The museum does not have its own parking. This is the closest one (400m, full address below): Keep in mind that parking is expensive in Amsterdam

About 15 minutes walk from the center of Amsterdam (1.2 km)
