  • Fan of math, our daughter found his happiness in this museum where it is possible to realize a lot of experiences. Very nice concept that allows to make mathematics accessible to the greatest number. Downside: some activities did not work and in some cases, the explanations provided in french, were however not translated.

  • I was a little disappointed, I imagined something that was more down on mathematical concepts applied instead is a kind of diveritmenti children's Park built on mathematical principles. To be honest not even whether it could actually bring children to mathematics. A disappointment

  • This place is a Gem. Very creative ways of making math quite interesting for Nichiren (and adults). It is also a great location right in the Flatiron District. The original Shake Shack is just a few s...  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.
