Presenting the winner of the category in Best Day Out (Indoors) for Families in Amsterdam:

Nemo Science Museum    

NEMO, the 2016 and 2017 winner of Best Museum for Families, is back! This unique museum in Amsterdam’s harbor continues to promise family fun for all ages. Bring the kids to create huge soap bubbles, make computers talk, learn how a phone works, watch a chain reaction demonstration, and push buttons and pull levers to find the relationship between action and reaction. As the Netherlands’ largest science museum, NEMO packs five floors with scientific and technological wonders and a hands-on interactive approach to captivate kids with the fascination of science. The roof terrace at the top of the building makes for a nice break for lunch or a snack.

Honourable Mentions:

Candy Castle Speelparadijs    

Nijntje Museum    

Kinderkook Cafe
