Fun for children and adults alike, the Science Center Nemo in Amsterdam is a must!

Full of interactive exhibitions that are both educational AND fun, our visit to the museum was a blast. We were afraid it would be aimed mostly to a younger audience but no, adults could enjoy themselves tremendously too.

The whole museum provides a new view on science, a view that is exciting and entertaining. It was definitely the highlight of our day!
