General information
NEMO is the largest science centre in the Netherlands. With five floors full of exciting things to do and discover, it is the perfect place for anyone with an inquiring mind. Everything in NEMO is connected to science and technology. Exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations. You will smell, hear, feel and see how the world works. After a visit to NEMO, you will know why bridges are so strong, what you will look like in 30 years, why you look so much like your parents, how to purify water, what happens when you kiss, how lightning and satellites work and much more. In other words, a day at NEMO is a pretty smart thing to do!

NEMO Science Centre is very accessible for all. The elevator can take you anywhere in the museum. Employees are happy to assist and guide you through the museum. NEMO also has a big roof terrace which is accessible by stairs if your not going into the museum. If you can not take the stairs, you can only get on the roof terrace by entering the museum. From the restaurant and onto the roof terrace is a small barrier.
