I just found out that the National Museum of Mathematics recently opened in New York City, and I am so jealous of those of you who can go and visit.

See this slide show by TimeOut to see some of the activities you can do there, including a hyper hyperboloid, a fractal wall that makes fractals of your shadows call The Human Tree, a racing track called The Tracks of Galileo, and a pixelated floor that shows you the shortest distance between the people standing on the floor, calculating new pathsways as you move about. This  last exhibit is  called Math Square.

And here's a New York Times article on how fun math can be. And another.

I've got to get to New York soon!
