You can try NEMO out using the "splash pad" Docker image, which comes preconfigured and loaded with sample data. Install Docker Community Edition (CE) and run this command:
docker run --detach --name nemo_splash_pad --publish 8000:8000 nanofab/nemo_splash_pad
... then open a web browser to http://localhost:8000. You can stop and remove the NEMO splash pad with the command:
docker rm --force nemo_splash_pad
