For those of you planning a trip to or living in the Big Apple, a visit to the newly opened¬†Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 8.26.27 AMMuseum of Mathematics, or “MoMath” as it prefers to be called, may just be in order.

To Zeno, a math museum seems to be a no-brainer, but let’s face it…it’s been a long time coming. Sure, a few science or exploratorium type museums offer exhibits for people to play with some mathematical concepts, but MoMath is one of the first major museums to put mathematics fully front and center. The New York Times has called MoMath a “high tech playground” and from the pentagonal sinks in the bathrooms to the hands on exhibits, MoMath has been getting rave reviews.

Math as fun, engaging and exciting? Hmmm…where have we heard that before?

MoMath is located at 11 East 26th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues. If you go (or have gone), please let us know what you think!
