  • Great place for kids. Ours are 4 and 5 years old. They both had an incredible time. Science, technology and innovation is explained in a playful, thoughtful and simple enough way for the little ones to understand (most of it). Plus: it's interesting as a parent as well! There's interactive equipment everywhere and the staff are the friendliest people you'll meet in Amsterdam.
  • Amazing place to learn science for both kids and adults. Lots and lots of experiments and labs, super cool science lessons and demonstrations! Your inside scientist could not ask for more!! We spent the entire day here and still could not do all the activities! We will be going back again! The staff put in so much effort with the labs and the chain reaction demonstration- it’s commendable and mind blowing!! Loved it!!
