The five-story museum building, lined with copper sheets, is the main attraction of the Oosterdok quarter. This area was created in the first half of the nineteenth century and protected the city from the tides of "inland sea." Later, it allowed the construction of the central railway station of Amsterdam. The museum, bearing the name of Nemo, was intended to cause association with the legendary hero of the novels Jules Verne - captain Nemo - inventor and innovator, a fighter for justice and discoverer. But the famous cartoon about the fish "Nemo" began to associate this museum with a scientific center for children, which is certainly not far from reality. The motto of this museum is interactivity. Here, every exhibit, every story, and the invention is interactive. Everything can be touched, and everything can be experimented with. But, as it turned out, such openness of the museum made it not only attractive for children but also adults, because we are all little children. To visit the museum, you need to set aside from one and a half to two hours, and be sure to visit the exposition Energy and Innovation.
