Both locations are in the centre of Amsterdam. The NEMO is in walking distance of the central
train station, with a direct connection to Schiphol airport (15 minutes by train + a 10 minute
walk). The Felix Meritis building is situated at one of the beautiful canals of Amsterdam
and easily reached by public transport.
