  • Great place with mathematical experiments to see, touch and play. Specially for children and families. It has a coffee and a shop.
  • We went as a family outing on Sunday. We were there for 2.5 hours (not nearly long enough) and were amazed at what we saw and heard. If you like science and math this is a very cool place to go. Our family of 4 paid €18 to enter (absolutely a fair price). We can highly recommend this place.
  • This place is simply amazing! Really cool stuff about math, that you can do and enjoy yourself like a 5-years old.
  • Above expectations! The place is three floors full of very exciting exhibits. We spent an amazing day at Matematikum, which is very high quality "food for brain". Highly recommended.
  • Great ideas, well run and good supervision. Great experience for children from 3-15 years of age
