A safe visit to NEMO Science Museum

NEMO Science Museum works with visitors to ensure everyone’s safety during trips to the museum. All visitors need to purchase or reserve a ticket with a specific timeslot in advance. Each time slot a limited number of visitors can enter the museum. Due to its interactive nature, NEMO is also taking additional precautions:
  • Arrive at the time indicated on your ticket and do not stay at NEMO for more than three hours.
  • Make sure there is at least 1.5 metres between you and other people, unless you live in the same household.
  • Follow the route markings on the floor.
  • Go to the cleaning station on each floor and sanitize your hands.

A kids' favourite in Amsterdam

Using a variety of playful exhibitions, NEMO Science Museum introduces young and old to the world of science and technology. Its five floors are filled with continuously updated exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations, making it a favourite of kids in Amsterdam. Smell, hear, feel and see how the world works. Everything is interactive, so everyone can join in with the fun and learning, especially in NEMO's Laboratory.

Outdoor fun

NEMO also has a great surprise on the outside. Its sloping roof with an outdoor café offers fantastic views of Amsterdam city centre. While up there, there's plenty to learn about generating power from the elements via the permanent 'Energetica' exhibition. As long as corona measures apply, the roof will only be accessible free of charge to museum visitors (drink or snack is mandatory). If you do not have a museum ticket, you must pay a €3.50 entrance fee. This amount includes a beverage of your choice from the bar on presentation of your entrance ticket. Entrance tickets for the rooftop terrace can only be purchased halfway up the stairs on the east side of the building. You do not need to make a reservation for your visit to the roof.
