The Nemo Science Center is a building covered in green metal, one of the unmistakable features of the Amsterdam skyline. It was designed in 1997 by the Italian architect Renzo Piano at the underpass that runs under the IJ canal and accessible via a pedestrian walkway; the outline resembles the hull of a sinking ship, which explains why it’s nicknamed the “Titanic”.

The interior is organized like a science park, where you can watch experiments and demonstrations of various kinds, and the terrace looking onto the port offers some marvelous views.
