In the biggest science museum of the Netherlands, visitors of all ages can discover how fun and fascinating science can be by trying out everything themselves.


(Re)Discover the Bicycle

More people in the Netherlands ride a bike than in almost any other country on earth. NEMO’s theme this summer is therefore; bikes. From July 5 until September 1, people of all ages can find out all about the bicycle in the Brilliant Bicycles summer programme (included in the entrance ticket). Sign up for special workshops and create your unique gadget for your bike, such as a special bell or a holder for your mobile phone. And what does your brilliant bicycle look like? Draw it, take a picture and hop on your own designer bike. In the museum restaurant you can see the photo exhibition Amsterdam, City of Bicycles. Access to the photo exhibition is free of charge.

Relax and Enjoy the Amazing View from NEMO’s Summer Roof

The best view of Amsterdam can be seen from NEMO’s rooftop square. Enjoy summer sunsets with extended opening times of the roof until 9 P.M. each day from June 21 through September 5. Besides a large restaurant, you can find a cascade of water, fountains and an interactive outdoor exhibition on the rooftop square. Experience the energy generated by wind, water and sun, and measure your power against that of nature. Every Thursday evening there will be live music and beer tastings from a local brewery. Chill, and listen to the music with a bite and a drink. In the weekend of September 6-8, there will be film screenings. If the weather is bad, films will be screened in NEMO’s Auditorium. Access to NEMO’s Summer Roof is free of charge (except on film nights and yoga sessions).
