Museum of Mathematics Makes It Possible For Kids and Adults to Play with Numbers  
Does the word “math” elicit flashbacks of pop quizzes and have you hearing the “wah-wah-wah” of Charlie Brown’s teacher? Put those days (and nightmares) behind you and visit the Museum of Mathematics (MoMath for short). This one-of-a-kind museum set out to make math applicable to every day life and illustrate that there is plenty of fun to be had when we physically interact with the world of numbers.

Inside its doors at 11 East 26th Street just off of 5th Avenue, we are invited to take a hands-on approach to math via 30 interactive exhibits. Through these exhibits, you’ll:
