The Museum was instituted by the artist Herman Heijenbrock in the year 1923. The name Science Center Nemo was coined in the year of 2000. Annually over 500,000 visitors visit this museum, which makes it the fifth most visited museum in the Netherlands. The main concepts on the first floor are DNA and chain reaction which include a room with giant dominoes with a flying car. On the second Floor the children’s can have fun through the collection of the small plastic balls passing through the circuit on to a small metal box. Besides this, the second floor features a water cycle on electricity, metals and buildings. Students also can do experiments on vitamin C and DNA. On the fourth floor there is a section held on the behavior of the human and numerous experiments are being conducted on memory tests, mind problems and sense testers. There are several cafes inside the museum and some of them allow you to snack the food bought outside. The large roof terrace is a nice option to have some fresh air with amazing views of the surrounding.
