    This is a must-do museum if you have kids. It is a science museum for kids from 4 years and up. You can touch everything, do experiments like making a huge soap bubble around yourself and thouroughly enjoy a day out.

    I took my two nephews thee aged 5 and 12 at that time and i really had a hard time getting to the 2nd floor. And we never even reached the 3th.

    There is also a roof terrace that you can visit (even if you don't visit the museum).

    Entree fee is 10 euro p.p. Kids under 4 pay no fee.

    For everyone, but especially kids, the NEMO museum is very interesting. It's a scientific museum, shaped like a boat. In summer it serves as a beach as well (from Friday to Sunday).
    As my five year old nephew happily told me after his visit: 'I did all sorts of stuff!'. It is a very 'hands-on' museum.

    The architect, Renzo Piano, is the same man who did Berlin's Potzdammerplatz and Tokyo Airport.

    A good place to sit down for a couple minutes of rest is on the roof of NEMO (the big green ship-alike building close to Central Station). You climb the roof from the open air ships museum. From the top you have quite a nice view of Amsterdam.

    The city has some fifty museums and many other exhibition areas. There are over seventy theatres and concert halls and dozens of places where performances are occasionally given.

    By this time we were only about 15 minutes on our way. And starting to get to know each other. During this long walk there was ample time for talking!

    I reckoned it is rare to get this close to traffic lights across a motorway. So I grabbed the chance and made a picture.

    Detail of the NEMO

    When we passed the Nemo the sound of cars resounded which was caused by the cars entering the IJ-tube just below us. In these windows one could see the cars reflected.

    And the New Metropolis Museum needs no introduction. This high-tech (science) museum is simply AWESOME!
