The foundation of the Museum of Mathematics stemmed from the closing of the several institutions of higher learning around the city. Glen Whitney was at the forefront of the movement that involved math enthusiasts looking for an establishment dedicated to the science. On the floor are an array of interactive displays and math-based games that tap into your analytical side and make for an interesting time out with the family. The museum organizes a lecture series by educational luminaries and has previously played host to Craig Kaplan and Paul Hoffman.
Walk the deck of the 900-foot (274-meter) aircraft carrier Intrepid, best known for its role in World War II, and witness thought-provoking exhibits on aviation as well as deep sea and space exploration.

The interactive programs and events are designed for all ages and guarantee an educational yet fun experience. The stunning interiors and the panoramic views on the outside make The Intrepid a must-visit.

Located at the American Museum of Natural History, Rose Center for Earth & Space focuses on all things related to the stars - from our home planet to the most distant galaxies. The fantastic, high-tech architecture actually makes you feel as though you have stepped into the future, perhaps even to a distant planet. The most prominent feature of the Rose Center is the New Hayden Planetarium, but the other exhibits (such as the installations illustrating the scale and age of the universe or the inner workings of the earth) are just as fascinating.
Occupying one of the spaces from the 1964 New York World's Fair, The New York Hall of Science is an interactive museum geared towards children. This incredible venue houses hundreds of exhibits detailing the history and evolution of science and technology, and is considered the city's only hands-on science museum. A highlight of the museum is the Science Playground, a park filled with interactive games and displays, whereas other permanent exhibits such as the Rocket Park and Mathematica: A World of Numbers... and Beyond are as notable. Fictional characters and scientific arts and crafts are used extensively much to the delight of the little ones here.
