    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
