NEMO at Schiphol Airport

Scientific and technological topics at the airport.


Schiphol, The Netherlands


As of January 2012, Schiphol airport passengers can visit the airport annex of Amsterdam’s famous NEMO Science Centre. Opened by famous Dutch scientist Robbert Dijkgraaf, a member of the supervisory board of NEMO, and Jos Nijhuis, CEO of Schiphol, the free to enter exhibition is located behind passport control in Lounge 1.

Once inside the annex, visitors can explore its six interactive exhibits. Designed for both young and old passengers, the exciting exhibits cover a range of scientific and technological topics including genetics, physics and mechanics.


Whilst primarily intended to occupy passengers before or between flights, the exhibition also aims to attract a national and international audience to the already popular NEMO Science Centre. In essence the airport annex also serves to raise the profile of the NEMO brand among those travelling through the City’s airport.

The exhibition was designed by NorthernLight and produced by Bruns.
