NEMO Science Museum Tours

NEMO Science Museum
The largest science museum in the Netherlands, NEMO features four stories of interactive exhibits and hands-on experiments and is housed in one of the city’s most interesting buildings. Designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, the NEMO building looks like a green, copper-clad ship rising out of Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands. 

The Basics
NEMO Science Museum primarily caters to children aged 6–16, but adults also enjoy the hands-on fun. Visit to do experiments, play interactive games, and see entertaining demonstrations, which let you explore space, journey through the human body, experiment with electricity, blow giant soap bubbles, and more. 

Several tourist passes, such as the I amsterdam City Card, include free or discounted admission to the museum. While visiting, make sure to head up to the rooftop terrace for some of the best views in the city.  

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Purchase tickets online before visiting to save time.
  • This fun, interactive museum will keep children entertained for hours. 
  • The museum boasts a restaurant, a coffee bar, and a café, as well as places to enjoy packed lunches.
  • The museum’s halls and exhibits (except for the Energetica exhibition on the rooftop) are wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
NEMO is located just east of Amsterdam Central Station, along the body of water called the Oosterdok. NEMO is easy to reach from Central Station by foot or by bike; just follow the signs for Route Oosterdok. Alternatively, you can take the 22 bus to the Kadijksplein stop, which is about a 5-minute walk from the museum. Hop-on hop-off buses and sightseeing boats also stop near NEMO. 

When to Get There
NEMO is open daily from mid-morning until early evening every day except for major Dutch holidays and occasional Mondays outside of the peak summer season. NEMO is popular among both locals and visitors, so school holidays, weekends, and rainy days are the busiest times at the museum.

The NEMO Rooftop Square
The roof of the NEMO building is free and accessible to everyone—even if you’re not visiting the museum. The “public square” houses an open-air exhibition, Energetica, that features interactive sculptures dedicated to the sun, water, and wind. There is also a restaurant where you can relax with a coffee or a sandwich while enjoying panoramic views of Amsterdam.

Address: Oosterdok 2, Amsterdam 1011 VX, Netherlands
Admission: €15, Free for Kids Under 4
