Background

  • website: august 2013

With five floors full of exciting things to do and discover, it is the perfect place for anyone with an inquiring mind. Everything in NEMO is connected to science and technology. Exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations. You will smell, hear, feel and see how the world works. After a visit to NEMO, you will know why bridges are so strong, what you will look like in 30 years, why you look so much like your parents, how to purify water, what happens when you kiss, how lightning and satellites work and much more. In other words, a day at NEMO is a pretty smart thing to do!

History. NEMO’s predecessors also had science and technology in their blood. The seed for what would eventually become NEMO was planted back in 1923 with the founding of the Labour Museum. In 1954, the name was changed to NINT, followed by newMetropolis in 1997. The name Science Center NEMO was introduced in 2000.

The name NEMO has been used throughout history by many famous authors to describe events and people who find themselves on the border between fantasy and reality. In Latin nemo means ‘no one’ and indicates a world between fantasy and reality. Visitors to NEMO Science Centre can become a scientist, technologist or technician for a day.
