Our family had a great time at this interactive Museum. It was so cute - and as the girls said, it made Math so much fun. You don’t realize that you are doing math while you are having such a great time.

We spent about 3h here. It was very interesting. Very hands-on. But to get the full experience, once must either spend more time, or visit often. It's a nice off-beat thing to do in NYC. Hardly crowded compared to the Met or MoMa.

Good for children with some fun, interactive areas for adults. Quite small but makes a nice change from arty museums.

Its a 2 level museum right by Madison Park. Ground floor and a basement. Quite a few interesting exhibits - colourful and thought provoking. Most suitable for children, although adults will learn too. The exhibits are interactive and there is no particular order to them......More
