  • Three cheers for the teen educators who explain the math. More cheers for the engaging interactive exhibits may be best for ages 6 to 12. Love the tricycles with square wheels.  more »
  • Actually, I feel like I've been left on the minus side: it's a total waste of time and money and I feel sorry for everybody who likes math and goes to visit this place. Behind the grand name of “Natio...  more »
  • I went with my kids and they were thrilled, no know English in order to use. It is very creative and educational.

  • One of The Best Hands-On Museums for Kids (and parents)!!! We've recently went to several museums from DC to NYC where it was very restrictive. Needless to say it was refreshing to come to this museum where my kids got to touch and interact with everything. I highly highly recommend this museum to any parents wanting something safe and that is educational. An added bonus- there's a playground across the street in the park.
  • A small Mathematical museum full of "physics, technology and geometry" in an environment the engineering and mathmatical brain adores. "It was awesome" says my 9 year old boy who loves math. It took 2 hours and I would suggest trying to go right at opening because dieing summer break this place filled up quickly. It is 2 floors of experiments, hands on problem solving and many mathematical solutions.
  • We had a great time! The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is easy to miss, and the space can only handle a few school groups at a time - which means it gets very crowded very quickly. But a good place to take the kids for a few hours of hands on fun!
  • I requested and received a full refund because of the terrible experience. Kiosks to purchase tickets were broken, no sign saying they were down, no one came to help us. Not enough explanation for the stations that were working. Even staff said activities lacked clear instructions and objectives. Do not donate your time or money to this badly run museum. Even after I asked to speak to a director, no responsible adult appeared. The price of admission exceeded the amount of fun to be had. Don't waste your time.
  • A large amount of the exhibits we're broken when I visited. Many of the exhibits we're giant sized versions of table games/puzzels that utilize math concepts. When everything is working it is probably a good place to take kids, but as an adult it was not super interesting. If everything was working 100% I'd probably give it 3 stars for adults.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
