About these ratings

Anyone that says Amsterdam isn't for kids hasn't visited NEMO, the Science and Technology Center, housed inside the ship-like green building on the harbor. Filled with hands-on activities, kids can spend hours concocting chemistry experiences, constructing buildings and crashing economies.

One recent TripAdvisor traveler writes, "I've been to science museums before and none compare to this," and this seems to be a sentiment shared by many.

Everyone ages 4 and older pays the same admission fee (€15 EUR or about $20 USD) at NEMO; however, most visitors say their euros were well-spent. Kids, ages 3 and younger can enter for free. Also, the rooftop urban beach (complete with cafe) is free to visit. NEMO is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit the NEMO website.
