NEMO Science Museum Reviews
We were lucky to visit whilst visitors were restricted due to COVID-19, so didn’t have the overcrowding issues that other reviewers reported. Our boys (9 & 12) absolutely loved this place... more »
This museum was amazing, it had so many interactive displays around the whole thing. The only drawback was that it was Sunday and the place was flooded with children. It was difficult to do anything..... more »
Very nice for kids! Well, it's also interesting for their parents to be honest :) you can easily spend there whole day without regrets. Toilets and food/drink corners on every floor. The top floor (fifth) is pretty much a food place which has much more options then other floors. You can pay with credit/debit card, use free lockers to leave your bags or just take them with you. You can exit and re-enter with your ticket which is great. All in all, nice place, especially if it rains outside :)
One of the greatest museums I have been to. A perfect place to get your children acquainted with science in a very funny and interactive way. A lot of astonishing games and cool experiences are offered. There is useful information even in the toilets!
