  • This is not your father's museum. This is a hands on fun interactive experience! The exhibits are related to math but you don't have to like math to enjoy them. Design a polygon in the computer and th...  more »

  • Such a shame. If staff were remotely engaged with the kids and exhibits could be really good. Over-priced, under staffed and over-run with kids on school trips. The place is already small but with exh...  more »

  • Really fun interactive/physical displays to invite your interest in mathematical concepts. Great for older kids -- or adults who either love math or are young-at-heart. (Because if you love math, you'll enjoy understanding the displays/activities, and if you're young-at-heart you'll enjoy playing with the displays/activities.)
  • A big name, a deceptive name. Granted, the description says 4th—8th grade, but should it really be called the National Museum of Mathematics? 2 mistakes on my end: entering thru the gift shop entrance and not realizing the shop checkout doubled as a ticket counter ::shrug:: ...once again, the name to me suggests free... and looking around the exhibitions sans child as an adult male, desperately attempting not to look like a child molester while getting suspicious side-eye from concerned parents. Probably lasted about 7mins before I couldn't handle the awk and left. Take the description seriously—this place is for kids only.
  • If you are an adult, do not visit this place. I was tricked as I was told that math would be at college level when it's only for kids. In addition, many exhibits were not functional.
  • The museum is a wonderful place for children to explore. The exhibits are always well maintained, and there are always events held after hours for young children and parents to explore the various quandaries of math. The employees and volunteers are always incredibly helpful and amiable to visitors.
  • This is an excellent, hands-on, children's Museum. My 6 year old twins love it and it is probably their favourite museum in New York - big statement but true. The staff are great and the exhibits are educational but more importantly, they are great fun. Small negative - there is no cafe.
