Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)

The first museum of its kind, the Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) is all about math. This museum goes beyond the mathematical equation by engaging students with fun, interactive elements, showing how math happens all around us. MoMath immerses students "to see" math and think beyond the numbers by letting them physically experience math principles on two floors full of 30 attractions. Although the museum focuses on math for grades 4-8, it also engages younger students. For example, they can ride square-wheeled bikes on Math Midway, race objects on the adjustable slopes in the Tracks of Galileo, study the angles in the center of the Hyper Hyperboloid, or study movement along our Math Square. The museum also offers a suite of interactive math exhibits that is available for presentation at schools.
The museum supports Common Core Curriculum Standards in Math.  We also have printable activities to bring to the classroom and can bring the Math Midway to your school.
