The National Museum of Mathematics strives to enhance public understanding and perception of mathematics. Its dynamic exhibits and programs will stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics.
Great place to take kids.
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.
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.
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.
The downstairs is the best part and don't forget to bring your patience. Some of the puzzles are hard!!
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!!
Make sure to bring plenty of hand sanitizer for you & your group! They should install some dispensers IMO!
Really needs some benches for grandparents to sit while the kids explore.
My daughter loved it
Fun museum! Ask questions and enjoy the experiences! Math is fun!
A tourist trap full of broken Microsoft gimmicks.
Most things here are broken.
Just a kids playground, but expensive.
More of a kids playground than a museum
Half the exhibits were broken but still $16 entry fee. Sucks. Wait a few months!
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.
Expensive and nothing/ no one to explain the actual math. Very crowded.
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.
Pretty lame. Lots of screaming children. Very few actually interesting mathematical exhibits/installations.
Open the left door. Make a subtle stand for tau.
Opening December 15, 2012!
