Did you know that there is a museum of mathematics? I didn’t know either, but now that I regularly get junk from the AMS (American Mathematical Society), I recently learned that there is a museum dedicated to math!

The new Museum of Mathematics will open in Manhattan in early 2012; see http://www.momath.org. MoMath has the enthusiastic support of notables such as actor, director, and science buff Alan Alda, among others. MoMath is showing the fun of math at the upcoming U.S. Science & Engineering Festival and in its traveling Math Midway http://www.mathmidway.org. In the coming months, the Math Midway will travel to Texas, California, Ohio and Maryland.
