  • A "participatory Museum" of a special kind. However, is it worth visiting as much for children and also for the Minis will be offered. Admission is still acceptable.

  • The museum itself is an interesting "interactive museum", one is constantly busy as a visitor, by one "learns mathematics and their connections through experiments", insofar it is one here never a dull moment. On Saturdays (and probably also on Sundays) the Museum of larger crowds of children is populated by which the younger ones are sometimes overwhelmed and therefore romp through the rooms or permanently "occupy some of them interesting experiments". As the Museum refers to himself as "unique in the world", the criticism of the environment should not be missing here: the cafeteria is more a provisional as the Museum worthy institution the claim! The food offer (in the afternoon at 3: 00!) was more than poor, there were just two unloving sandwiches, one with salami with a slice of cheese, without any decoration on cucumbers, tomatoes or lettuce leaves! Two lonely doughnuts supplement the offerings in the sweet! The establishment is more than unkind not to mention the limited number of places. Here the operator should become even smart to the corresponding bodies of other museums... The Museum Shop is book-heavy, without special highlights. Apparently, the Museum company not to a corresponding merchandising, which is regrettable, because apparently ends even existing in the Museum creativity here cares.

  • The mathematics is a very nice interactive museum, where there is much to discover. Everything is very carefully designed. The questions at each exhibit, which stimulate thought liked me very much. Sometimes I would have liked an explanation however. The cafeteria and the shop, however, fall off sharply. Here you could make much "mathematical", represent a task such as prices. Because both directly to the Museum, there are 4 points.
