NEMO is renovating

We are working on Humania, a new exhibition at NEMO. The 4th floor will not be accessible while we create this exciting new exhibition. Humania will open on 23 November 2019.

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.
