Who needs the Guggenheim?

Who needs the Guggenheim ? And who says that math is boring? Certainly not the creative folks at New York City’s newest museum. Opened to the public on December 15, 2012, the National Museum of Mathematics, in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, is North America’s only museum completely dedicated to mathematics.

Funded by more than $23 million in grants, including a boat load of cash from Google, the museum is geared to school-age children, but is fun for all ages (even math-impaired oldsters).

Featuring thirty permanent exhibits, as well as special events, the museum is all about the hands-on, interactive approach. With exhibits like “Tessellation Station”, Coaster Roller” and a square bicycle ride, this is one museum that kids will beg to visit.
