AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This fun museum features various exhibits that explain things like chain reactions, soap bubbles and how hydrogen is the fuel of the future. There seems to be an emphasis on kids, but there is plenty of fun for adults, too—assuming you have an interest in science. The NEMO science center is built on top of IJ Tunnel, which connects the city center with the north. The building was designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano. Split between its five levels are hundreds of science experiments, all designed with a very “hands on” approach. One of our favorite reasons for coming here is that it has one of the best views in the city, and every summer NEMO transforms the roof into a city beach.
