NEMO Science Center

‘Forbidden NOT to touch!’´ that’s the motto of NEMO. In the largest science center of the Netherlands you can become a real scientist or technologist and perform your owns tests and experiments. And as Signage is in English and Dutch, it’s perfect for international visitors as well. Ideal for children, but adults can also have a lot of fun here and learn something about science and technology at the same time. Experiment in a laboratory, travel through a DNA cell or stunt with gravity.


Amazing views of Amsterdam

Even without an entrance ticket you can get on the roof terrace and enjoy the marvelous view of Amsterdam. Your kids can entertain themselves on sunny days splashing in the Water miracle. In this educative water playground they can rearrange waterways by turning taps and showers on and off, or just muck about in the water.
