This museum seemed like a lot of fun. It has 2 floors of exhibits. Unfortunately, MANY of the exhibits were broken. I think if they had all been working we could have spent 2-3 hours there. On the exhibits that were working, our preteen-ager had fun and so did we. I'd say it's best for ages 8+ with an interest in math.

I took my children here ages 14, 11 and 10 over winter break. They all enjoyed it. They enjoyed that it was interactive and that they could touch and place with everything.. They took turns trying every single exhibit. My older one became bored quickly --not enough to keep her busy. I think it is more geared to the 10 and under crowd. This is good for about 90-120 minutes, not much more than that as it is small. We went early to avoid the crowds as it was a school break. Glad we did because when were leaving it was really starting to get crowded which is not enjoyable because you need to wait around to try the exhibits. I would recommend for anyone with children 10 and under.

You would need to enjoy math to even consider going to this museum. Not my thing. It’s got books and interactive activities .

I brought a 13 year old here who loves math, she had a lot of fun but I think that’s probably the high end of the age range. Good interactive exhibits, although they could have been explained better. Not a bad place to spend a few hours (pricey for what they offer, though).

I love places like this! And what I loved even more at this place was how busy it was with children. It was great to see the kids enjoying themselves and their parents making an effort to take them somewhere else than the cinema.
