It is simply known by the name NEMO and is situated in the Oosterdok in Amsterdam Centrum. It is more of a museum cum science center and is believed to have originated in the year 1923. It is housed in a tall structure since the year 1997 which has been constructed by Renzo Piano. There are five floors in the museum with the facility for having hands on the exhibits. It is undoubtedly the largest science museum in the country and has a record of attracting more than 5 lakh visitors each year. We entered the lobby to find a small gift shop and a cafeteria. We bought some small copies of the various attractions in the museum from the gift shop.
At the end of the circuit there were participants who were arranging them in the order of their size, weight and colour. We could also spot a water cycle, a show representing metals and buildings and a display based on electric current. Frankly speaking, I could hardly understand the logic behind these displays but believe me, they were designed very beautifully. I could also see that both my husband and Aaron were thoroughly enjoying everything at the museum.
