  • We stumbled upon this museum a few months prior and knew we had to come for a visit. My children immediately fell in love with all of the odd experiences based in mathematic principles. The museum off...  more »
  • The Museum is poorly maintained, 5 activities were already walking more, activities are poorly explained and enough staff to accompany children. A true waste of time and money

  • This is a great place to visit if you want to be hands on. Staff are pleasant and keen on to help and explain the maths involved in the exhibits. This is a small museum but packed with activities. If ...  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.
