NEMO Science Museum
All our apartments in Amsterdam
When it comes to Amsterdam's museums, art is not the only area of focus! Science and technology lovers can enjoy a visit to one of the town's most popular museums: the NEMO Science Museum. Every year, the biggest science centre in the country attracts close to 500,000 delighted visitors.
Located only a few minutes away from the Amsterdam Central Station, in a breathtaking building designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, the creator of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the NEMO Science Museum welcomes you all year round for a fun visit filled with discoveries.
The museum's purpose is simple: introduce children and adults to the curiosities of the world of science and technologies. If you are keen to understand the mechanisms that govern how the world functions, the NEMO Science Museum is made for you!
The building's five floors offer many exhibitions, fun experiments, workshops, and demonstrations. Constantly updated throughout the year, these activities help you, for example, understand puzzling everyday natural phenomena, analyse mechanisms that govern the universe, learn why you look like your parents so much, or see how your face will change in the next thirty years thanks to an ageing machine.
Educational, fun, and interactive, the NEMO Science Museum is a perfect place to enchant and teach the youngest. As such, several activities are designed especially for them. This is the case of the NEMO laboratory, for instance, which will give them the opportunity to don a lab coat and conduct experiments like real scientists, or the "Teen Facts" exhibition, which will explain to them what happens inside their body when they kiss for the first time!
