Substantial support from a variety of organizations
NEMO is a long-term beneficiary of the BankGiro Lottery. Thanks to this support, NEMO is working on the phased renewal, replacement and development of its displays and exhibitions for a broad range of visitors. This includes the addition of elements that place its exhibition objects in a historical and/or social context.
At heart, Google is pure mathematics: it responds to people’s questions by using a mathematical formula to display the most relevant hits. Google is working with NEMO in a partnership whose aim is to get even more young people excited about mathematics and what you can do with it.
ESA is the European Space Agency: the organization responsible for the development of space travel in Europe. ESA also ensures that new services and products developed within the aerospace sector become available to the people of Europe.
The Netherlands Space Office (NSO) is the Dutch space agency. Commissioned by the Dutch government, the NSO develops and implements the Dutch space programme. One task of the NSO is to strengthen communication about space travel with the aerospace sector, teachers and students, and the general public.

Kessler & Co
Kessler & Co is a company that drives on engineering. We find it important that people, and young people especially, are trained in science and engineering. Therefor we support the work of NEMO Science Museum.
Platform Wiskunde Nederland
Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN; an organization that represents the Dutch mathematics community) helps to boost the prominence of mathematics as an independent discipline. PWN fulfils this mission in cooperation with the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands), Leiden University, Utrecht University, the University of Twente, Delft University of Technology, and the University of Groningen.
PPG is investing in the next generation of innovators. With PPG’s contribution we can make an important, positive change to the way STEM education is taught at primary schools.

Shell is one of the world’s leading energy companies. Its objective is to meet the world’s growing energy needs in a responsible manner. NEMO and Shell are dedicated to generating enthusiasm for engineering among young people.
STENIM, the Energy-Purchasing Foundation for the Metalworking and Electrical Engineering Industry, an initiative by employers’ organization FME-CWM, was founded to make a difference by reducing gas and energy expenses. Now, STENIM supports NEMO in its mission to make a social difference by promoting science and technology. STENIM’s donation will benefit the development of a new permanent exhibition on the fourth floor Humania.
Stichting Goede Doelen Nh1816 Verzekeringen
As a cooperative insurer, Nh1816’s aim is not to maximize profits. With this philosophy in mind, it supports various socially relevant projects through its Charity Foundation (Stichting Goede Doelen). One of the foundation’s goals is to get young people excited about science and technology, which is why it is making a donation to Humania, a permanent exhibition opening at NEMO in the autumn of 2019.

The Mondriaan Fund

The Regional Public Water Authority Amstel, Gooi and Vecht
Half of the land area of the Netherlands consists of polders (areas of low-lying land reclaimed from rivers or the sea, and protected by dykes) that are below sea level. That water must be clean and healthy, and its level must neither be too high nor too low. Our strong dykes hold the water at bay, thus ensuring that we stay high and dry. NEMO will be bringing this theme to the public’s attention in the very near future
VSBfonds (the VSB fund) supports ventures aimed at creating a society in which everyone participates actively, feels involved, and has opportunities for personal and social growth. By contributing to the renovation of the museum, the fund is ensuring that NEMO will be able to improve its visitors’ experience and reach an even wider audience.
Water is all around us. Around our homes, our workplaces, or the places that we use for recreation. Waternet is the only water company in the Netherlands that focuses on the natural circuit formed by all this water: the water cycle. An important part of this cycle is waste water treatment. NEMO is developing information to show visitors how this works.
Partners who have contributed to specific exhibitions:
