Owner description: Expand your world at NEMO Science Museum. In the largest science museum of the Netherlands you will find proof that science and technology can be captivating for all ages. The remarkable building on top of the IJ-tunnel offers five floors of exciting hands-on activities. At NEMO you can experience the joy of science and technology, by blowing gigantic soap bubbles, watch an enormous chain reaction and experiment in a real laboratory. In a variety of exhibitions you can 'Take a journey through the mind' or learn that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to sustainable electricity and smart transportation at 'Smart Technology'. Enjoy a magnificent view over Amsterdam The creative mind behind NEMO, build in 1997, is Italian architect Renzo Piano. He had a clear vision for his design of the NEMO building, with its very own piazza 22 metres above water level. The spectacular roof terrace has a magnificent view over Amsterdam and the Eastern Docklands. You can access the roof terrace free of charge. The roof terrace and cafe in NEMO are the perfect places to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink.

With two kids and hot weather the Nemo was great. Especially the top roof with the water was nice. .................

We went on a summerday in july because we thought there wouldn't be that many people, we were wrong. Nemo was crowded and though it is big some of the activites were too crowded.
It is amazing that soapbubbles Attracks most people but maybe it's because Big and small find its funny.
There was Lots of new science for us and the kids and it was good learning. But 6 is the minimum age for kids. We Got a 4 year old with us and she found it too much with the noise and All the people.

I'm sure if you are a kid, you'd love Nemo but I'm not. There's not much here for adults. At ?13.50, I felt ripped off. The place feels like you have wandered into a primary school.

Take enough time and patience to see this great, modern way of presenting some of the most amazing scientific facts, discoveries, theories. Science in it's funniest form! With or without the kids. Don't forget the roof!
