The National Museum of Mathematics, also known as MoMath, is a great place to visit to have fun while learning.

There are many interesting and interactive exhibits at the museum. Some are riding a square-wheeled bicycle around a circular path or pulling yourself on a small boat across a box filled with triangles. You can play with little bots that follow you around while you are wearing an electronic vest.

Also, there are many computer games that sharpen your math skills while you have fun answering the questions. After a long and exciting day at MoMath, go to the gift shop and choose a souvenir to remember your amazing day. I bought a shirt with the museum’s colorful logo.

The National Museum of Mathematics is a fantastic place to spend your day, and I recommend going with your family and friends. It is located at 11 E. 26th St. in Manhattan and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Find out more online at
