The Amsterdam Mamas Recommend Awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services in the city for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Museum 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, 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.

The runners-up were:

ARTIS - Amsterdam Royal Zoo


Het Scheepsvaartmuseum


Look for the Mamas Recommend window sticker, certificate, or online logo around the city, and you'll be sure that the business or service you are using is tried and trusted by the Amsterdam Mamas community!
