Science and technology are all around us each and every day. NEMO transports your pupils into a world of everyday objects which are nevertheless very remarkable. Pupils learn by getting involved, and learn a lot about the world around them while having fun. The inviting exhibitions appeal to pupils in both primary school and secondary school.

At NEMO, we believe that supervisors are important, so they are allowed into the museum free of charge. Supervisors should stay with their group and are responsible for their pupils. We expect at least one supervisor for every ten pupils, however we recommend one supervisor for every six pupils.
NEMO is open for groups from Tuesday to Friday.
For school visits there are fixed timeslots, starting at 10.00, 11.00, 12.00 or 13.30. The duration of a visit is 3 hours at most.
Schools can only book outside school holidays.
