Expand your world with NEMO
NEMO Science Museum is the largest science museum in the Netherlands and is for anyone who is curious. Every visitor, from young to old, can discover the world of science and technology for themselves. NEMO takes you into the world of those everyday things that are still very special. Discover, for example, how bridges work, why you sometimes see things that are not there and how lightning is created by getting started with the interactive exhibits yourself. Workshops, videos, experiments and demonstrations complete your NEMO day. A crackling sweater or a rainbow: after a visit to NEMO, you will see the world with new eyes.
Nemo will be open on the following Mondays in 2023
Monday February, 20th, 27th, Monday April, 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, Monday May, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, Monday June, 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th, Monday July, 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st, Monday August 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, Monday September, 4th, Monday October, 16th, 23rd, 30th and Monday December, 25th.
Experiment with wobbly skyscrapers in 'Constructions' or create a bubble that you can even stand in. Take on the role of a chemist and do experiments in a Laboratory . On the second floor of NEMO you will find Technium with exhibitions about technical developments that the Netherlands has left its mark on. In between, you are welcome in one of NEMO's catering establishments, where you can enjoy a drink and a snack.
Physics is everywhere: the colors of a rainbow, a crackling sweater and the difference in voice pitch in men and women. At Fenomena you can call up these phenomena yourself and immediately see how it works. Discover how ordinary yet surprising natural phenomena such as light, sound and static electricity are put together.
A visit to the NEMO Science Museum can of course be concluded in the NEMO Shop, where all kinds of exciting scientific souvenirs for young Einsteins are for sale. Whether you go home with a plasma ball, 'Bouncing Egg', Molecule Building Kit or the 'Da Vinci Watch', you will certainly succeed here.
