Serving: Bonn, Germany The Arithmeum presents the history of mechanical calculating machines, as well as the computing of today, in an aesthetically pleasing environment. Many demonstration models invite the visitor to discover the historical milestones of mechanical calculating, and at interactive multimedia stations the visitor can develop small microprocessors in a playful way. Early highlights in the development of computers are also exhibited. The exhibition includes works of geometric constructivist art, design objects and chairs.
Serving: international, based in Germany IMAGINARY is a non-profit organisation (German gGmbH) for the communication of modern mathematics. It offers a platform for open and interactive mathematics with a variety of content that can be used in schools, at home, in museums, at exhibitions or for events and media activities. The main contents of IMAGINARY are its interactive programs and its picture galleries.
Serving: Southern Germany MiMa, the museum for minerals and mathematics Oberwolfach, presents two of the most unique features of the region: the scientific knowledge of the Mathematisches Forschungsinstituts Oberwolfach and the one-of-a-kind minerals of the Black Forest
Serving: Dresden, Germany The Adventureland Mathematics Dresden is the result of the cooperation of the Technischen Sammlungen Dresden and the faculty of mathematics of the Technischen Universität Dresden
Serving: München, Germany The ix-quadrat is a small mathematics museum located on the campus of Technische Universität München (in Munich, Germany).
Serving: Spain, primarily Catalonia You can “touch” and discover mathematics in all of the rooms of MMACA. There are experiences to enjoy arithmetical and geometrical properties, symmetries, mirrors, impossible tessellations, statistics, and more.
Serving: Germany, primarily Giessen More than 170 exhibits at the Mathematikum open a new door to mathematics. Visitors of all ages and educational backgrounds experiment: they solve puzzles, build bridges, stand in a giant soap bubble, see themselves infinite times in a mirror and much more.
Serving: Firenze, Italy Il Giardino di Archimede is a museum completely devoted to mathematics in its widest sense, including, that is, not only that which goes under the name of pure mathematics, but also its application to other sciences, to technology, and most of all, what is maybe the most important thing of all, its role in everyday life. The objectives of such a museum are manifold. Firstly, the audience can come into contact with the central core of mathematical ideas that reside inside the exhibits and determine their connections. Like a skeleton, which cannot be seen directly but requires the appropriate instruments and can be deducted from the posture of the animal that owns it, mathematics can only emerge from the comparison of different objects and physical phenomena, at first sight very diverse, but which depend on a single mathematical concept or result, which links and unifies them.
Serving: United Kingdom
There is at present no dedicated place in the United Kingdom where you can go to experience the full joy, wonder and power of mathematics.
MATHSWORLDUK is a registered charity which aims to change this and to establish an exciting, interactive Discovery Centre showcasing the patterns, structures, discoveries, applications and people of Mathematics.
Serving: primarily Arizona, US; occasionally throughout the US The world is full of mathematics - the physical world and the world of our imagination. But in school children rarely learn about the directions that learning math can lead them in. The Arizona Math Road Show is about to show them, via a mobile Math outreach program.
Serving: primarily New York City; some throughout US Mathematics illuminates the patterns that abound in our world. The National Museum of Mathematics strives to enhance public understanding and perception of mathematics. Its dynamic exhibits and programs stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics. The Museum’s activities lead a broad and diverse audience to understand the evolving, creative, human, and aesthetic nature of mathematics.
Serving: Chicago, Illinois (US) Math is not just a set of tools and techniques. It has a fascinating history made of incredible anecdotes and inspiring stories. It has strong connections to the world and there are many channels to appreciate math: by doing, thinking, listening, observing, feeling, creating - and not just by calculating.
