If you’re expecting a city characterized only by quaintness…

…you will be shocked by the sight of Amsterdam’s NEMO Science Center.  Designed by none other than world-renowned Renzo Piano, the building is located at the Oosterdok in Amsterdam-Centrum, between the Oosterdokseiland and Kattenburg waterways.  Resembling the bow of a boat, the center is one of the most visited sites in the Netherlands and features exhibitions and hands-on experiments.
