  • This might be a good thing to do with small children on a rainy day, but otherwise don't waste your time or money. The Museum is tiny, directions are not clear, many exhibits are broken or out of orde...  read more »
  • הגענו לשם באופן לגמרי לא מתוכנן, ביום האחרון שלנו במנהטן, הגדול שלנו (17) ביקש לבקר בו. המוזיאון קטן - שני אולמות. במבט ראשון קצת מאכזב, אבל בילינו שם בסביבות שלוש שעות, והיה קשה לעזוב. המוזיאון מציע ...  read more »
  • Most of the centers have the emphasis of the activities in physics, engineering, and biology. This is one of the few in the world that has all the activities enclosed mathematics. Many of the exhibits requires a bit of explanation from the instructors, but here there are many fascinating tasks related to geometry, computer science and statistics that I have not seen anywhere else. For example, you can build fraktalgeometrifigurer with the help of mirrors, simulating bias in the normal distribution curves with a marble machine, or learning algorithms by get a swarm of robots to follow you. Ideal for families with school-age children and teachers that will have great ideas for teaching.

  • 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.
  • Super cool little interactive museum. Great for exploring at any age. The exhibit descriptions are electronic and adjustable to your math background. They have smart ID tags to let you interact with the exhibits and send things to your email, but many of the card readers didn't seem to work. At least 10-20% of the exhibits were also out of order at the time that I visited. Still had a great time and saw kids and adults alike enjoying everything too.
  • Only went to the gift shop and great selection of things there. Will definitely be checking out the museum when I get the chance. (20-sided die available here for any D&D players. And great selection of metal puzzles)
  • The only redeeming factor about this 'museum' is the AC. There is pretty much nothing interesting about this place unless you have kids and want to waste your $16 on each. Staff is extremely nice though.
