Many museums are not just amazing places to explore from the inside, but also architectural masterpieces on the outside. Classic examples of iconic European museums would be the Louvre or Guggenheim, but there are also many more lesser-known gems that I’ve been able to visit in the last few years. Today, I’m sharing my personal top 3 of lesser-known European museums with amazing architecture.
1. NEMO in Amsterdam
NEMO is a science museum in the centre of Amsterdam, basically shaped like a giant UFO. Quite the eye-catcher! NEMO is a great place for kids and teens to learn about science and technology through simple experiments. I used to visit the museum when I was a child and still remember how I played with huge soap bubbles and explored the chemistry lab. But that isn’t even the best thing about the building. There aren’t many skyscrapers in Amsterdam, so it’s hard to get a great view of Amsterdam’s urban landscape. Luckily, NEMO has an amazing rooftop terrace that is freely accessible to anyone!
