Opening times

NEMO is temporarily closed

NEMO Science Museum will be closed until 28 April 2020 in accordance with the national policy on the coronavirus. We look forward to welcoming you back to NEMO soon. More information.

What are busy and quiet times?

NEMO is popular with families, so school holidays and bank holidays are generally some of our busiest times. If you want to visit NEMO at a quieter time, then come early in the morning (we open at 10.00) or later in the day (after 15.00).  In general, the nicer the weather is outside, the quieter the museum is.

Rooftop square

NEMO’s rooftop square is open to the public free of charge every day from 10.00 to 17.30, including all Mondays when the museum is closed.

The roof features an outdoor exhibition called Energetica, a large rooftop terrace and a restaurant. The rooftop square is open longer hours on summer evenings, and there is a regular schedule of extra activities.

There is no access to the roof in bad weather, during special events, at New Year and on King’s Day.
