Really great museum for kids, but adults will really enjoy it too. The museum does not condescend to children. It provides information that can jumpstart budding scientists and adults who just want to know more. We were there doing half term for the European schools...More

The exhibits were good but it was extremely busy and noisy when we visited. The kids had to properly queue to try something and because of this they cannot really take time and explore. The highlight was the rube goldberg show, not sure if this...More

We visited with family and it was lovely smart fun for rainy morning. Chain reaction is super interesting, but so is everything else. Highly recommend for visit with school children, since they can observe schoolbook topics in practice. Plan at least 2-3 hrs for visit.

Nemo is housed in an amazing building with clearly defined areas and sections. Some rather gimmicky activities and very little space between each. There is obviously no limit on entrance which is a shame since it was almost impossible to interact with the installations. Very...More
