Opening times

NEMO is open every day from 10.00 to 17.30, with the exception of some Mondays and King’s Day.

What are busy and quiet times?

NEMO is popular among 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. At weekends, Sundays are usually busier than Saturdays. 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.
