NEMO Science Spectacle

Friday, 8 December 2023


This activity has ended.

On Friday 8 December, come to Marineterrein next to the iconic NEMO Science Museum building in Amsterdam for a show on and around the water that will surely make a splash! Three stunning scientific experiments will be performed live at this location.

Three surprising feats

On the water between NEMO and the Marineterrein, a real boat will be lifted up using an ordinary vacuum cleaner. A gigantic wheel will go up into the air. And a real rocket will be launched. Science journalist Anna Gimbrère and scientist Noor Abdulhussain will be presenting this extraordinary show.

Practical information

The NEMO Science Spectacle is free of charge and can be watched from the quay at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam. There’s no need to register for the event, but of course it could get busy. So make sure to be on time. The spectacle starts at 18:30 and will last about 30 minutes. The Marineterreinkade is accessible at 17:45.
