    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.

    The National Museum of Mathematics (MOMATH) opened. The new MOMATH is located at 11 East 26th Street. After December 16th, the Museum will be open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, 7 days a week. Read more

    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.

    Visitors can ride on trikes with square wheels; take a boat ride over funky shapes; play with robots, and make their own tessellation tiles. Read more

    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.

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

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

    Take advantage of the ASTC Travel Passport program to gain free admission for two adults and up to four children under the age of 18 in the same family residing in the same household.

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

    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.

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

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

    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

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

    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.

    Open the left door. Make a subtle stand for tau.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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