  • We were with our two daughters 3 - and 4-jährigem in the mini Mathematikum. Two hours of logical fun cafeteria visit. Highly recommended!

  • It's just interesting and great made. You can learn something else also as an adult. I could spend hours there stop me and try out.

  • From the train station of Gießen just math Museum located a 3-minute walk. I preach the enjoyment of elementary school kids, as well as an abstract mathematical mathematical content. In fact many elementary school students and children looked much came to watch. To start learn to enjoy mathematical puzzles and exhibits of cone curve you can see at a glance the room and probably are interested in junior high school students around you see all takes half a day. There are also attractive in a little unsatisfactory feeling may reverse mathematics like adults, but there are two daily. I think good facilities to encourage greater interest in arithmetic and mathematics. Exhibition are about basically the description of German and English. That it will be less tourists plays well, the biggest problem the only museum to bother coming to this town. In that sense, when passing, goofing around in front of the station to better facilities might be.
