    I expected a proper science museum, that also has something to offer for adults. But it really is only for kids. Your kids will love it, but for parents/adults it is not recommended.

    Geweldig! Mijn dochter wilde niet naar huis. Zo veel te zien, te doen en te leren!

    Nemo is een echt doe-museum. Onze kinderen hebben het erg naar hun zin gehad. Er was van alles te doen, te zien en te leren. Toen het museum ging sluiten hadden we moeite de kinderen mee naar huis te krijgen!

    Perfect for kids. Not so perfect if you hate a lot of kids screaming together. Be sure to check national holidays before visiting.
