Its a 2 level museum right by Madison Park. Ground floor and a basement. Quite a few interesting exhibits - colourful and thought provoking. Most suitable for children, although adults will learn too. The exhibits are interactive and there is no particular order to them......More

This was definitely one of the highlights of our New York trip. Highly interactive and great for adults and kids. You don’t have to know theoretical math to go and play!

Deals with very complex math (for people paying attention). People complaining that there was nothing for kids over 10 just weren't understanding the math. Four-year-old had fun with surface exhibits, but there's some serious math here for those who attend to it.

My son loved this place. Granted, he didn't really bother reading many of the mathematical explanations of each exhibit, which I found frustrating, but it's hands-on, fun and having walked about 20 miles around the city over the previous 4 days, was a welcome opportunity...More

If I were a staff member or volunteer there, I'd be really pleased to see how fully engaged kids visiting this place become within moments of arrival. Very creative and at times challenging activities -- and really varied! Our two grandsons, ages 10 and almost...More

As individuals who love math and learning, this seemed like an appropriate stop. The museum has two floors (not large) and almost all of the sections are interactive. The interactive part is a great design. However, there are a few logistical issues with this: a.)...More
