Plan your visit

Food and drink

Delicious, homemade and healthy. That’s the quality of food and drink you can expect from the museum’s restaurant and cafés. At NEMO we opt for sustainable and wholesome ingredients. Enjoy a glass of fresh fruit juice, a homemade cake or a delicious meal. Do you have an allergy? Are you on a special diet? Our chefs will be happy to tell you everything you need to know about our ingredients.

Museum Restaurant

Up on the roof you’ll find our restaurant designed by the renowned architect Renzo Piano, with panoramic vistas. Enjoy a glass of homemade lemonade or a delectable sandwich in the spacious, glass lounge. You are also welcome to visit the restaurant without a ticket.

It is not possible to make a reservation at the Museum Restaurant, but there is always a place to sit. The restaurant works with a varying menu and the menu of the day can be found on the screens in the restaurant.

Coffee bar

The Coffee bar is located just beyond the ticket inspection point. Here you can wind down after your journey and find out about everything that NEMO has to offer. Enjoy a delicious cup of tea or coffee, with a cake, while you’re at it.

Museum Cafe

The cafe is located at the heart of the museum, on the second floor. It’s a good spot to take a short break and enjoy a drink or a sandwich. With your batteries recharged, you can then continue on your voyage of discovery through NEMO.

From January up to and including June 2024, NEMO is working on the new exhibition Technium. As a result, the second floor is only partially accessible during this time. The Museum Cafe will be open on the weekends.

Bringing your own food and drink

You are welcome to bring your own lunch to NEMO. To make sure the museum stays nice and clean, we prefer it if people do not eat or drink around the exhibits. There are a few designated areas where you can consume your own food and drinks. Ask one of our staff members where you can find these areas.
