Welcome to the National Museum of Mathematics
The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) highlights the role of mathematics in illuminating the patterns and structures all around us. Its dynamic exhibits, gallery, and programs are designed to stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics. The Museum’s innovative exhibits will engage folks from 105 to 5 years old (and even younger!) Given its mission to change perceptions of mathematics, MoMath is especially valuable for 4th through 8th graders.
