Thus, you can grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks, have a nice lunch/dinner at Vapiano or stroll from botanical garden to museum, from zoo to science centre, from synagogue to diamond factory and enjoy a waterfront lunch in between.

Prices and location

Tickets for adults are 15 euro, but with a student discount you can go there for only 7,50 euro. I think the price of 15 euro a visit is way too much, but paying a student price is fine. Visiting address is: Oosterdok 2, 1011 VX Amsterdam and contact info: [email protected]. For those who want to know more about NEMO, you can visit NEMO’s official website.
