In November the Science Centre takes part in Museumnacht - a night of museum-based festivities from 7pm to 2am. An €18.50 pass will give you access to the parties in all participating museums and institutions (around 42 of them!)
‘Discover the world for yourself’ is the motto of Science Centre NEMO, highlighting the interactive nature of the museum. Five floors of exhibits fill a waterfront building shaped like an enormous green boat, designed by Renzo Piano.
Most of the content is aimed at younger children, but everyone will find the displays (which are in both Dutch and English) interesting and informative. It’s a hands-on playground for the mind. A highlight is the Dance Dance Revolution game on the third floor...
If you want to avoid the crowds, arrive early in the morning or late in the afternoon. If you’re bringing children yourself and it all gets a bit chaotic with excitable youngsters running around, head to the rooftop bar for a coffee. This is a lovely terrace, especially in the sun, offering great views over the city - and the drinks aren’t bad value either.
Be aware that the museum is closed on Mondays - and also that the sex education exhibit may be rather more revealing than you’d expect!
