In the Netherlands, even technical museum is different from other "not Dutch" museums. In Amsterdam's Nemo Museum not just exhibited steam engines and aircraft, which visitors should look from a distance. Here everything is possible - touch, feel and taste.

Nemo Museum in AmsterdamEven while developing the concept of the Nemo museum, its developers have chosen a completely new and unusual way. And not so educated and wise elder adults, how inquisitive children and adolescents were considered  as potential visitors. All sections of the exposition are equipped taking into account age and perception of young visitors, so that they may discover the secrets of genetic engineering and the boiling water, as if in the course of an interesting game.

The words "Do not touch!" - are banned

Nemo MuseumPerhaps the most pleasant thing in the Nemo museum - is an active ban: is strictly prohibited Do not touch or Do not test exhibited there exhibits and samples of technologies. Of course, we do not tell that you have to keep hand on the hot pan, during the experience of water boiling. In much extent this applies to the electrician, when before turn on something you have to connect all wires and power supply by your own. If connection was made incorrectly, you can immediately learn the topic "Safety Directions".

Nemo in AmsterdamVery popular, and not only among children has the section of the museum, where you by your own can prepare sweets from licorice. The results of experiments, you can leave for yourself,  but there no mandatory items of the program, that is, no one forces you to make something against your own will. 

All shows and screenings are intended solely to the public. Especially funny looks "chain reaction." In the studio were constructed endless chains of falling and emerging elements of the kinetic phenomena which could be imagined only in cartoons.

Technical Museum Nemo is also interesting for adults

In the halls you can see a lot of adult visitors without children, who also get pleasure from Nemo and can gain here a lot of new information. And really, where you can still clearly see the entire production chain of enterprise, from planning and preparation to scanning a barcode and a fully automated production. And adults solid people behave themself here, like a children.

Nemo in Amsterdam, built by the architect Renzo Piano

Nemo in AmsterdamThe Nemo museum building added Amsterdam more pluses than minuses. Between working on a project of DaimlerChrysler company on the Potsdamer Platz square, and the construction of London Bridge Tower in London, architect Renzo Piano has found time to build the Nemo museum building in Amsterdam. Nemo MuseumIt is located at the entrance to the city tunnel IJ, looks like a sinking ship, but officially only "symbolizes the entrance to the tunnel".

Opened in 1997 museum was originally called "The New Metropolis", but under this name it has not achieved success. Such a situation was the reason that, in 2000 museum was renamed to Nemo.

Wonderful view of Amsterdam from the roof of the Nemo museum

Технический музей НемоVisit of Nemo can bring pleasure also for those, who are not interested in technology in general. And all this is because the roof of the building is equipped with a terrace, where is strictly allowed to consume brought food and drinks. In addition, the terrace offers a fabulous city panorama.

Except during the Dutch school holidays and special events, a terrace is free for those who are not museum visitors. But in bad weather terrace does not work for security reasons.
