A peek inside the North America’s only Math Museum-now open in Madison Square.

 MoMath replaces lectures and textbooks with more than 30 eclectic exhibits covering topics such as algebra and geometry. The museum, which is designed for visitors of all ages, aims to eliminate math’s intimidation factor and “show how everyone can experience and enjoy mathematical exploration at their own level,” according to hedge-funder–turned–executive director Glen Whitney. MoMath utilizes state-of-the-art technology to personalize each visit: Patrons’ ticket stubs are wirelessly tracked as they traverse the two-floor space, and exhibits adapt based on user preferences from the first few electronic displays.
