4. The Museum of Mathematics


The Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) boasts hands-on installations that educate visitors on the wonders of math.  Located just north of Madison Square Park, the museum originally began as a reaction to the closing of a small mathematics museum in Long Island, the Goudreau Museum, in 2006. MoMath turned out to be the only museum of mathematics in the entire country and has since received an official charter from the New York State Department of Education. Individuals ages “105 to 5 years old,” are welcome.
