Science Centre Nemo in Amsterdam

NEMO BuildingThe four floors of NEMO Amsterdam is a stimulating scene. Children of different ages have fun with giant soap bubbles, experiment in the chemistry lab or produce videos and music in the Media Lab. Grown-ups, with or without children of their own, have fun at NEMO too. It’s hard to hold back when presented with all the gadgets and experiments. Hoisting oneself to the ceiling, solving murder mysteries with DNA technology and disassembling old electronics is more than child’s play.


Amsterdam NEMO houses loads of experiments and exhibitions inside its giant green hull on Oosterdok. No matter your background you will learn something new and have fun while doing it. Attractions change regularly, check the homepage to get the latest word.
