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.
