    Downstairs area gets busy, arrive just after opening and it's a lot less hectic.

    Nice to hang and think a lot, great for engineers and mathematicians

    Good for kids, less so for adults.

    Penrose tiles!

    Math? Museum? This place should be called the STEM Playroom!

    terrific small museum which would challenge both kids and adults. Entrance price is somewhat steep but guarantee you will really enjoy it.

    no detail was left untouched by Platonic forms

    It's fun, but there are many thing that are not working, and it is a pretty brand new museum. Pay attention to the guides those guys seem to enjoy what they do.

    I'm a math teacher :) and Fun museum! Ask questions and enjoy the experiences! Math is fun!

    It was like a lame version of the Exploratorium. Didn't bother to pay to see the rest of it.

    Despite what some posts say, there is real math at MoMath. It's just more in the form of geometric puzzles...which reflects the creators bias towards algebraic geometry.

    So boring!!!!

    Jack Nevin · September 7, 2014

    Some of the free Math Encounters presentations are interesting. Like "Movie Magic: Hollywoods Visual Effects"

    Visit the Museum of Math for more than an algebra class. Exhibits are geared towards younger kids but are fun for all ages.

    This museum is great and interesting. It sparks focus and curiosity in regards to mathematics.

    Avoid if you are over 12 years old.

    Great for math lovers but a lot of exhibits weren't working. I wouldn't call it a museum as much as two floors of interaction. There was no history there

    Mia had a great time. We are now members.

    Take a ride on the square wheeled tricycle and test your abilities at the enigma cafe.

    Not worth the price, especially for adults. Many of the interactive exhibits are out of order or missing pieces, etc.

    Chris · December 16, 2013

    The downstairs is the best part and don't forget to bring your patience. Some of the puzzles are hard!!

    Michelle · December 10, 2013
  • Mark H.

    I don't agree with the negative comments. My 3 kids were very engaged by the exhibits and ended up asking me a lot of questions about math. Definitely stimulated their minds.

    They will not honor reciprocity with other SDTC museums. Very disappointing.

    This is by far the most underwhelming museum in NYC. If you are looking for an expensive indoor playground, try the Children's Museum of Manhattan. A lot more exhibits and a much friendlier staff.

    Amazing!!! great for all ages

    Get there late? Sit and access the WiFi.

    Free admission for Bloomberg employees and up to 3 guests.

    Enjoyed idea of interactive experience, definitely visually and mind stimulating process. Not everything that is on displayed is available over the counter. Staff is pleasant and positive.

    This place is a total gem! All the exhibits turn into rides or activities!!

    Jennifer Youn · July 7, 2013

    Make sure to bring plenty of hand sanitizer for you & your group! They should install some dispensers IMO!

    Lisa Gansky · June 20, 2013

    Really needs some benches for grandparents to sit while the kids explore.

    A tourist trap full of broken Microsoft gimmicks.

    Most things here are broken.

    Just a kids playground, but expensive.

    Fabrizio Caso · January 27, 2013
  • Barbara B.

    More of a kids playground than a museum

    Barbara Bilodeau · January 19, 2013
  • Sharla S.

    Half the exhibits were broken but still $16 entry fee. Sucks. Wait a few months!

    Sharla S · January 10, 2013
  • Joe D.

    Very cool exhibits and decent explanations from the museum staff. However, go early on a school day to avoid longer lines of screaming kids.

    Joe Diaz · January 2, 2013
  • Andy G.

    It was a slightly disappointing experience. Many installations weren't working and several were not operating bc museum admin was short. For the price, it needs some work. Great idea, poor execution.

    Andy Garcia · December 31, 2012
  • David S.

    Expensive and nothing/ no one to explain the actual math. Very crowded.

    David S · December 30, 2012
  • John B.

    Noble idea, mediocre execution. Space is too small. Too many exhibits not working yet. Disorganized, w/no eduqcational narrative. Poorly written kiosks. It just opened, so I'd hope it gets better.

    John Berman · December 26, 2012
  • Alex G.

    Pretty lame. Lots of screaming children. Very few actually interesting mathematical exhibits/installations.
